I feel like an idiot for asking but does anyone know how to pull the turn signal bulb from the housing, I see the two clips but they arent budging for me, ideas?

While I have never had to touch any of the bulbs on my '07 yet (so I might have no idea what I am talking about)

If there is a gasket/o-ring that seals the bulb assembly in place make sure that the gasket is clean and in place when you put the bulb housing back. If the seal got spoiled when you were trying to remove the housing originally you can get moisture inside of your lens.

This happened to my coworkers Mazda Protege 5 and now he not only has moisture in his lens but he blows bulbs on that side frequently.

You should be able to twist to the left or right i cant remember. But the two clips you are stating is the plug in harness for the bulb

i drive an 05 and unless you are running different headlights, they should just twist out. there are not clips holding it in place. you simply just twist and pull out.

i don't know why you are having all the troubles trying to swap out your turn signals man lol

The crazy thing is that the bulbs do get stuck. When I opened up my headlights awhile back, I ended up baking them bulbs and all because I couldn't get either headlight bulb out. I'll deal with that issue when I have to.
