    I have a light that broke in the socket how do you go about removing it? I have tried a few things and they have not worked yet how do you go about that. It is the turn signals and running lights?

    Thanks Chris

    What kind of bulb?

    I once put some construction adhesive on the end of a stick and stuck it on a broken out bulb. Wait 15 minutes and pulled it out. Its not too technical, but it worked.

    Its for the turn signal and running lights on a western head gear. It has the metal plate in there that screws in can you buy the metal plate anywere and just change that?

    Use A needle nose pliers and a screwdriver. slide the screwdriver down the side between the bulb stub and the socket, now pry it away from the side and grab it with the pliers.:waving:

    if it's a bayonet bulb (has 2 pins and twists 90 degres in like an 1157) just a pair of needle nose pliers. open them enought to put one point on either side of the center, push in and twist. Works every time.
