Gauge bulb question?

Hey guys - noticed my water temp and fuel gauges were very dim the other day after driving on some washboard. Pulled the dash and found that the green bulb inserts had broken off and were floating in the gauges. One of the previous owners had taped the bulbs to the green inserts - which had given way. Now I have two gauges with the green inserts floating around and can't figure out how to get them out or replace them since they seem bigger than the bulb hole!

Don't really want to replace the gauges as they both work fine. Any way to fix this without trying to take the gauge apart? Do I try to bust up the plastic green insert and pull out the pieces? If so - any suggestions on an alternative bulb that will closely match the rest of the stock gauges?

Bit stumped on this one....

Remove the gauges and shake out the debris. Then get some green colored leds from Superbright to replace them.
