How do I change the 3rd brake light bulb in the wing of a 2.3-16? There is a plug in the back of my wing that rotates counterclockwise 45 degrees. Then what? I've managed to chip, scratch and ding the surrounding parts. I didn't find anything about this in the shop manuals nor on the CD-ROM.

Then you have to pull it out. I don't have any specail advice for this. You have to use a pick or something to get it out.

Thanks. Now that I have it out I see why it wouldn't come out. The wires were twisted around the bulb and in removing the plug the glass part of the bulb remained in the housing and its metal base came out with the plug/lamp base. Everything was corroded I'll need to order a new lamp base/wiring.
