1. Pull your emergency brake up
2. Turn key to "on"
3. Put car in neutral
Should be able to shimmy a flathead along the side of the casing to pop it up, bulb is right underneath

Do you recommend led bulbs as a replacement?

It's always better to replace with an LED

If swapping the bulb didn't work, check and make sure your tail lights are working with the headlights on. The gearbox light and tail lights run off the same fuse, at least in an '06.
