It does snap out of the scoket and then you have axcess to the bulb. Use a screwdriver if necessary.

Are you having trouble getting to the bulb? or removing the bulb from the fixture?

If you're talking about removing the light's bezel, use a piece of that rubbery shelf anti slide material or equivalent. Gives some extra 'bite' so you can turn the bezel (most are counter clockwise) just a little and then straight out of the fixture. Bulbs are usually the same...push in, rotate counter clockwise and out. Careful, the bulb's glass can break fairly easily....the number now stands at 5. Good luck. Bob

Depends on which forum, some forums are more efficient. I suspect it's because they use synthetic blinker fluid.

I'd say you need a box of grid squares or a can of radio squelch.
