Default Gauge Cluster Light Bulb Replacement...Help!

I"m new to this forum and am hoping some of you guys can help me out. I have a 2000 bonneville SE. I have two incandescent bulbs burned out behind the tach on the dash. I figured just pop the cluster out, take it apart and change them....nooot happening. After removing the black plastic cover on the back of the cluster to reveal the back of the green circuit board, i noticed the bulbs seem to be soldered to the board. This isn't a problem, however, how do you get the circuit board off? I assume the gauge needles need to come off the servo motors in order for the PC board to be removed from behind the gauge faces. Is there a special tool to remove the needles? I tried pulling on them thinking they were just a compression fitting. Didn't want to pull too hard fearing breaking something. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. It'* really annoying driving at night with only half the tach lit up.
