With the radio out, maybe you can reach in and push the trim/knobbs out (assuming the radio is relatively simple to take out.)

take a flat head screw driver, or any favorite prying tool, start at the right side and carefully pry away. that piece is held in 4 clips. disconnect the connector and you should be fine.

btw....

They have most bulbs for Hondas. Dirt cheap and in stock too (most of the time)! Just make sure you take in the old bulb.
