    If your just changing bulbs you only have to remove the glass panel by popping it off and then the bulbs should just pull out. Use a small screwdiver with some cloth round it to remove cover.

    If I remember correctly you have to remoive the glass bit to take the binnacle down from the roof anyway.. there are a couple of screws behind the glass and a couple behind the sunglass holder or blanking plate.

    As already said, if you are just changing the bulbs, you can do it with the light still in the roof.
