This is embarassing... but I have to ask somewhere, so here it is:

I've got a burned-out taillight (dash warning + visual inspection confirmation). Problem is I can't get the bulb out! :ben: Is there some trick to it? Does it just pull straight out or do you twist it.. ?? I don't want to break the bulb and have a metal socket stuck in there.

Help!

you have to twist it, i forgot if you push down at the same time. it shouldn't take to long to get out. but don't feel embarrassed.

i went to pepboys and tried to get the bulb and i couldn't pull it out for shiet. so i go inside with the holder in hand. go up to the guy, and say i need a replacement for it. so i say, 'yeah i couldn't get the bulb out'. all he does is twist it and it pops out. that was the most embarrassing. haha.
