    changing light bulb in boost gauge..

    Ok, I've tried searching but I can't find anything on this. I have an older APC boost gauge (came w/the car so i'm not sure exactly how old) w/white face. The light bulb is burned out and I'm wondering if anyone here has any idea how to change it?

    no, there's only the brass fitting for the hose connection, two threaded posts for who knows what, and the wires for the light coming out the casing..
