e46 flashlight in glove box

i got an 04 330ci i wanted to know if it was possible to change the little bulb inside of the flashlight thats in the glove box. its an ugly filament bulb thats not that bright and i was gonna replace it with an led bulb but i couldnt take it out or even know if it comes out and i didnt want to break the bulb and ruin the whole light if it was never meant to be taken out in the first place

TRuckee is an unknown quantity at this point
I don't think an LED, a single LED, would be brighter than a filament bulb. Most rear-end brake lights have about 20 LED's to be as bright as a single old-fashioned incandescent bulb. Have you checked the lumen output of the bulbs involved? Yeah, this device is a wimpy thing... probably meant to look around the interior of the car by a stylish German woman who dropped her lipstick at 200K/H without disturbing the driver. Let me know if you ruin your's. I got an extra.
