'91 Mercedes 190E - HELP w/ Light

We own a 1991 Mercedes 190E 2.3 car. I'm having troubles getting this backlight to come on...

the gear shift panel

The backlight which illuminates the P/D/R/3/2 does not come on so it is difficult at night shifting to/from reverse/drive.

I've checked the fuse box and there doesn't appear to be a fuse for it. For the record here's a snapshot of the fuse box:

My guess is a dead bulb below the panel. Can someone tell me how to access the bulb beneath it? I've tried lifting the edges with a screwdriver but it doesnt appear to give.
