Default Dleco Radio Backlight

Hey guys it'* been a while since I was on here. But anyway I purchased another Bonneville today. I sold my 2000 SSEi 3 weeks ago and couldn't live without my Bonnevile so I purchased a 2002 Bonneville SE little less technical on the electronics. Any how my radio works great but ther is no display, I think the back light is burnt out. Is it replaceable without paying a $175.00 for an exchange from Radio Sales. I just can't seem to bring myself to pay that kind of money for a bulb. I am very mechanically inclined and I just don't want to screw anything up replacing the bulb if possible

I'm not familiar with the 2000+ OEM stereo'*, but I did replace the backlight bulb in my 97 Bonneville. Though, it was not a direct replacement, it was a bulb similar to the OEM bulb which required a little bit of soldering.
