Several of mine were stuck like that. I had to put rubber in the jaws of some pliers to get enough grip on the bulbs to yank them out. I can confirm though that 194s from superbrite are what you want. I've got them in my cluster.

Well after much more research i found a guy on utube who actually shows you,that yes the bulbs are soldered in and theres a pin on each side,you have to cut the solder off then remove the pin then straighten the pins on the led and slide them in place bend them over and resolder

Still cant find the right size holder for the bulbs.the 86 !/2 bulb is 18mm across and the 1990 bulb carrier is 18.6mm across
the 86 bulbs do come out the 90s do not
