how to get to speed/tachometer lights?

I am about to replace my high beam warning light as I found it dead and I believe it to be the culprit behind my high beam getting burnt out, the original bulb and just recently my new one, but I can't figure out how to get these out. Anyone know? Those little screws only secure the meter cables. I've tried pliers on them but it feels like I'm about to break something. If there's a way to pull them out you must need a special tool, or a smarter brain. any ideas?

The light bulbs are under these plugs.

yeah, they're threatening to break. I'm going to wait till i can find all the led's I can find and do it all at once, but not now as I'd need to order them. so I guess it just needs some lube then if in fact that's how I get them out. I'll def need to lube them otherwise something will break
