Please unplug the oven first!
This is pretty common and can be a pain. It's tacked in place with hot glue, and sometimes there may have been enough moisture to corrode and seize up.
You could heat it up (hair dryer, maybe?) then use needle nose pliers. Be careful if heating so you don't burn anything.
You may be able to put the tips of needle nose pliers inside the broken bulb's socket, gently but firmly force the pliers jaws apart and then rotate the pliers to loosen it.
Another cool trick is to put a big glob of hot glue on the end of a stick or dowel, then shove it into the broken base and let it cool about 5 minutes, then turn the stick.
I like to put a little WD-40 or rust buster on the threads of the new bulb, too. Grease, Vaseline, cooking oil, or anything like that will work. Just a thin coat.
Once you get new bulbs in it, please let me know if you the lights are still not working. This is usually a problem on the control board that can be easily repaired.

this microwave oven slides out of its casing. here's how: first shut the power to the unit by the breaker from your main panel. on the mw oven remove the underneath rightside vent filter. unplug the large white connector that you see in through where the filter was . Dont break it. its locked and keywayed. next remove the top front plastic horizontal louvered front vent by one phillips screw on each end of the vent left and right. then remove the next two phillips screws you see under where the vent screws were. then remove the 3 shoulder screws underneath the front edge of the case bottom then slide that piece of **** oven out of its casing. I'm sure you will know what to do next. Good luck!!
