    Those peanut bulbs just pull straight out.

    I know they sit tightly in there (by design). In case you need to see for yourself:

    Until you break the bulb and can't pull out the stem. Then you're buying the whole buld retainer assembly. Ask me how I know :rofl:

    Straight out. Over time with the heat of the bulb they can tend to bond to the socket. If you use pliers be gentle.

    Wrap it with some tape leaving a “tail” of tape you can grab. Then pull straight out. It’s the same thing for the interior map lights.
