    My passenger side marker light/turn signal bulb keeps coming loose. I tried to rig it but to no avail. I found the part i need [part #81515B]. Now the big question is how do I remove the original one. I tried a small screwdriver to push the tab nothing. Granted it already doesn’t work so i can break it but want to avoid that. Any tips

    Confused what you are trying to use the screw driver for, prying the bulb out the plug? Can you post a picture of?

    I was trying to get the plug out. Bulb kept falling out. It was all grunged up from mud, dirt and stuff and things

    plug out of headlamp assembly or bulb out of plug, I assume plug out of headlamp assembly, Since you are already replacing it I would carefully try to break the plug to be able to remove it. It may be best to remove the entire headlamp assembly while doing this.

    Why don't you try scraping the mud and dirt off the plug or clean the area with a damp cloth?

    Last thing you'd want to do is break the plug or the housing.
