Default Radio display bulbs

Hey Guys,
I'm getting ready to pull my factory (Cassette w/EQ) radio to replace the bulb in the display.. Anything I should know? My theftlock light is not blinking so am I right to assume it has not been activated and it is okay to remove this radio to service that bulb without it becoming disabled?

Also, are there any hidden screws holding that trim panel in or just clips. It is putting up a flight when I pill on it.

Thanks
Dean

I was playing around with removing each clip individually behind it and all that, but it just comes right off with some proper yanking, you can pull it off right from the driver'* seat. And yeah then you have to get the screws, you'll see them.
