I just looked at my2005 and you will need a 9/32 socket on a nut driver handle to loosen the 2 screws that hold it to the bumper. just loosen them don't take them out. Then you have to wiggle it out of the bumper and past license plate and then just turn the socket assembly to reveal the bulb. Let me know how it turns out. If you need apicture i can get that.
Yep..... did one just last week... once you have the socket in your hands, just put a dry towel on the bulb and pull straight out. Should be very easy to do. No twisting to do on sockets or anything like that. Just pull out the bulb and insert the new one.
It's a woman's perogative to change her mind. It's my perogative to change it back.
I'd add that getting a little di-electric grease will help protect against termiunal corrosion, as well as make it easier to get out in the future. However, try to keep it off the actual bulb glass, it could cause premature bulb death. Hope this helps.
