Yeah I finally got it out, but of course the LED bulb had 3 of the 7 burned out. Tried to get the old bulb back in and I could NOT get it back into the housing. I just took the bulb out, put a piece of tape over it and put it back in the car. I'll just have the dealer swap it out next week. I don't have the time to *&^% around with it.
