Rev dashboard light does not work

Seems the bulb has gone as only the rev light has gone out, the spedo still works.

Can anyone tell me which buld I need to buy and from where, is it easy to fix myself or going to require taking apart lot's of the dash.

Thought it might be a nice idea to change the colour of the rev and spedo bulbs while I'm there, what's your thoughts on red?

cheers in advance

The Bulbs are 286 (just search eBay for 286 bulb or led)
The colour is set by filters in front of the bulb so you cannot alter the colour much.
I replaced the centre console bulbs with LEDs and they are brighter and
make the green much lighter.

To get the clocks out it's two Allen headed bolts then unplug two multiplugs.
The bulbs are in plastic holders that twist out, the bulbs then pull out. If you use LEDs they are polarity sensitive so will only work one way, so fit them with it all connected up and the lights on.
