One of the two brake lights on my driver side is out. I went to go manually remove the brake light from inside the trunk, and could not get the top socket/bulb out. It seems to be stuck. I’ve looked around on other forums for similar issues and a common problem seems to be the bulb overheating and causing the plastic of the socket to melt and become stuck.
I can’t tell if this is the case. If so, are there any tricks to getting this twisted off if it is melted on? Trying not to spend a ton of money for the dealership to tell me it’s not fixable and that they have to replace the whole brake light assembly.
