Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
I found and remove the front turn signal bulb holder, but could not figure out how to remove the bulb to replace it. It would not twist out or pull free. I ended up breaking the old bulb in the process.
Only way you will get it out now is to use a pair of needle nosed pliers and some wd40 or other solvent. Grab the brass part of the bulb and twist it. It will collapse towards the center and get smaller as you do this. Sometimes it takes a bit of "destruction" to get it out.
Make sure you clean as much rust from the inside of the socket before replacing bulb. I usually wipe some grease on new bulb base to prevent this sort of thing. If socket is badly damaged and can't be re-used, you can buy a new one from most parts outlets and just cut the wires and connect. (get the wires on right or it won't work correctly!)

Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.
Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.
