Little help needed...

This lightplate is OLD!
What are the round stuff next to the bulbs?

I can measure 5V to the connector so it must be the bulbs that are broken.

This should just be to resolder with new o es right?

Looks like the clear coat has been melted a bit from the heat of the bulbs to me.

Or they put a protective coating there to help with corrosion to the bulb.

Yes Kurt, you should be fine to change the bulbs.  The part number is usually printed on the other side of the PCB

Looks like the clear coat has been melted a bit from the heat of the bulbs to me.

Or they put a protective coating there to help with corrosion to the bulb.

There is a protective coating, but the marks around the bulbs are from small self-adhesive foam rings that are normally there the seal light leaks around the bulb.  On anything with any age to it, these discs would have long crumbled away :)
