Q: How do I remove the rear license plate lights? on 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Have been to three places, and no one knew how to remove the old bulbs. My manual only shows an arrow with a small twist and pull....maybe if you have bionic fingers. I have been warned by a deputy sherrif to have them replaced...help!

Cheaper to take it to a "real" mechanic and get it fixed before the deputy sees them out again!
We got them bionic fingers you know. Or just don't drive it at night.
I did have a real mechanic look at it! I'll try another place today, oh brother, all to change a bulb. I am ready to duct tape a small flashlight to the plate!
That's what we tried. Each socket turns just a hair in either direction, clockwise, or counter clockwise, but will not come out. It's plastic around the bulb, so it's not like it's corroded, just no room to manipulate fingers to turn them. Maybe there is a special tool. I am going to Firestone next, see if one of the mechanics there have an idea. Thanks though.
