When you say, remove the filter opening, do you mean the little plate the flops down when you open it? The bulb seems to be wired into the microwave on my Spacemaker XL microwave. It fell out when I opened the hatch to replace. It doesn't appear to be screw in. Seems like it is wired or something. The black housing for the bulb will not twist or pull off.
Can you enlighten me?

SpacemakerXL GE Microwave changing bulbs:
When I twisted the bulb to replace it, it broke off from the housing and was really hard to get off. I unscrewed all the screws that holds the cover then when the bottom metal cover of the microwave is lowered it is an easy access to unscrew the bulb housing and pull it to the front. This way it is easy to work and undo the broken off screw part of the bulb.

I almost did the same thing but when I realized it was not turning, I began to press in on the bulb so it would move the other piece as well.
You must have broken the bulb off the part that screws in.
1. Unplug the microwave from the wall outlet.
2. Get some small needle nose pliers or maybe even try tweezers, to unscrew the piece that you have left in the black housing.
I am trying to locate a replacement bulb and will post my findings on that issue.
