the damn corner lights wont come out

I am feeling kinda retarded today and I realized that I had a headlight out. So down to the autozone to pick up new ones and realize I am out both corners, a license plate light.

How do they come out? Im guessing push and twist or something.

I'm a little confused... you have the following lights out:

1. Headlight
2. License Plate Light
3. Corner Lights (integrated in the heads)

Is that right?

I believe most of the lights twist & pull to get out other than the headlight which has the spring thingamajober holding it down. If you have that many out, did you check fuses?

as I said Im feeling a little retarded today. So lets ignore the headlights and the license plate. I replaced those already. The marker lights on the outside corner of the headlight I cannot seem to pop out. thats what Im aksing.


Also yeah I checked the fuses I just drive with the lights on all the time. its a habit I got into when I started driving

The corners twist and pull out (I'm 85% sure)... don't know which way but I remember doing it when I swapped headlights awhile ago...

I remember those when I did the BHLM. They were pretty tight and the "twist" part on the plug is rather small and hard to turn.
