So, ia there a trick?? How to remove Parking light buld???

I know this may sound silly, and I would consider myself mechanically inclined, but before I break something I thought I better ask....

Is there a trick to getting the front parking light bulb out?
Is it a twist socket?

I can get the connector off, but I am not sure of the buld/socket twists and pulls out or not?

Any tips or tricks, or is my car just being stubborn????


Advise/comments appreciated

Cheers

What year is the car? On my 2010 you can twist the socket and it'll come off. The space is very limited but it can be done without removing the housing.

haha, and go figure, I was thinking a big hammer might solution my problem....I like the way you think!


Car is an 07', but I can't see it being any different...I will try twisting a little harder I guess...

I've done it on my '09 and it is indeed just twist and pull out. I actually used pliers to get a better grip on it. There's a video that shows the direction in which to twist it: Parking Light Change 2007-2010 Nissan Versa - 2008 Nissan Versa S 1.8L 4 Cyl. Sedan

194A marker lights on the sides? They're in a bad spot in a way you can't put much hand strength into turning them, long needle nose would do the trick though.
