The last battery in my 3-cell Maglight (closest to the end, farthest from the bulb) has leaked acid out inside the tube /handle and caused the battery to get stuck, I can't get it out to clean it up and...

Unscrew the lens and remove the bulb, then get a small disposable container and fill it about an inch full with WD-40, or a similar de-seizing fluid. submerge the stuck end in the fluid for a few minutes and it should come off without issue. Make sure to clean the tube completely before replacing the bulb, lens, and batteries.

Couldn't find out how to take bulb part out so I could get corroded batteries out

The back of a Mag-lite screws off to replace the batteries. Look for textured lines like on a coin.

Mag-lite does not work i have tried new batteries and new bulb and cleaning the spring in the rear.The switch appears to be operating correctly,but has not been checked

If your flashlight is like mine...

The switch closes the circuit to the bulb, so there is a wire, or metal conductor running from the switch to the bulb holder. If your switch is mechanical, it will push a metal lever forward ... bend lever this so it contacts the bulb holder better. If your switch has a wire, the wire is soldered to the bulb holder, but the switch may be bad

There is a second wire or metal conductor running to the back of the flashlight. This conductor has to make good connection to the metal spring. Stretch out the metal spring, and see if it rotates a bit so it makes better contact with the conductor coming from bulb.

There is a third point. This is where the front of the battery touches. If batteries touch the bulb, then the problem is the metal spring in the back or the mechanical switch lever. If your batteries touch a copper spring, see if you can clean this spring and pull it out a bit.

Flashlight does not light up. batteries are new and bulb is new.

My Maglite torch that takes two AA batteries will not switch on. I think I require a replacement were the bulb fits into its connection.

The top just screws off and the bulb just pulls out....there should be a replacement bulb in the bottom cap under the spring inside that little plastic holder...just do not touch the bulb with you fingers when installing it. use a tissue paper to hold the bulb...
Line up the two little wires with the holes and gently press the new bulb in...

I had to change the battery 2 D and now it doesn't work. I have never had one work after I change the batterys what am I doing wrong?

Unless the bulb is burned out or you are putting the batteries in wrong there is not much that can go wrong with a flashlight.
