Hi taxi,
I literally did this same job 2 days ago.
At the bottom of the heater control panel there is a thin strip of plastic. Prise this off carefully and you will see 2 torx screws.
Undo these. Take out the tray above and push in the heater control panel.
You will need to manouvere the panel to access the 2 bulbs at the rear. its a bit tight.
Twist the 2 brown bulb holders 45degrees to remove.
I got replacement bulbs at halfords (about £3 for 2).

Hope this helps

Cheers
