Tricks to replacing tail light twist on socket???
I noticed the driver's side twilight was out so I picked up a new 1157 bulb...unscrewed the two philips head screws, popped out the twilight housing and then twisted the socket to removed it from the housing...it didn't want to come out.
I was able to persuade it a little help from a blade screwdriver...easily replaced the bulb that had blown and tried to twist the socket with the bulb back into the housing...no can do...
I understand you have to line up the right side tabs on the socket with the right sized slot in the housing but it does NOT want to go in...nor does trying to push it to get it started...
...anyone know what I am doing wrong or have any tricks or tips for re attaching the socket to the housing???
