Changing out a bulb on the dash

So, first of all, I have a 2008 chevy cobalt and im trying to find out if the bulbs on the dash are LED or if its just a regular bulb. Also, Im wondering if I would need to remove the dash to get to it or if there's an easier way. If anyone has any insight, I greatly appreciate it.

They are LEDs and are easily changed if you wanted to change color. You have to remove the instrument panel and mark the position of your needles.

Arrows show negative side of LED

This one I did in blue.
