Default How do I get the bulb out of the holder in the HVAC console

I found the replacement bulb for the lights, but I can remove it from the bulb holder, the dealership charges $14 a piece for them, do you guys know any tricks?

A bulb like one of these?



Just grab the bulb with one hand, Holder with the other, and pull them apart... wiggling helps.

I broke the bulbs over the garbage and used pliers to pull the rest out, if its those you are talking about.

wrap some tape around the glass to get more leverage, wiggle a bit & they'll eventually brake loose
