Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
If you are unplugged you won't get shocked and if it's 12v you won't feel it. Your on the right track using needle nose or a square nose plyers. Insert pliers and pull handles apart I have found to be the best way for getting broken bulbs out.

You are ok to continue as you have disconnected it from the wall socket

SOURCE: I am trying to replace
u need to to make sure if it is a roung plug bulb (which requires about 1/5 th of a counter clockwise turn) or a straight insert bulb. the bulb should not break nor should the socket

it sounds like you are getting corrosion in the socket from water leaking in. Then you end up with high resistance which then causes more current draw whcih then overheats the socket and bulb.
You need to clean the socket very good or replace it if it's on a short wireing harness with a connector. They are @ $20.00.
Then you need to spray some electrical contact cleaner/deoxidizer in the socket to kep it protected. Go to Radio Shack or an auto store to get this.
Finally, look for how the water is getting in there. Sometimes the lens has a gap between the outer lens and lamp body. Seal the entire joint where the lens is attached to the body with a clear silicone sealer. Let us know your outcome. Good luck.
