Yes, that's what he means. Note they're usually a bit tough to pull out by hand. Use pliers (with a cloth or similar to protect from scratching) if needed. May also need a small piece of rubber tubing to reach in and press onto the bulb to remove it.

Note before you bother with this, have you tried the tapping method? The connection inside the panel can be intermittent and some have found that giving a couple stiff taps on the panel solves the problem, at least for a while.

And before you ask, it's just one bulb that lights the whole panel.

BTW - you say above that it's a glx 1.8t, but all GLX's have the V6 and Climatronic (which I don't think is lit the same way), so above assumes you really meant GLS.
