Must have some small hands! No way in hell I was going to be able to just fit my hands in there to twist and fish it out! Simply not enough room with big hands.

pretty much used just my index and and third finger to guide it in and the middle finger to apply pressure (thats what she said). and then i plugged the cable in after the bulb was in place.

It seems different for everyone. This took me forever because my hands couldn't fit. I had to use my fingers and cut them up terribly but eventually got them to work.

Im glad I found this guys-

Well was excited i found those fin covers for the bulb, removed, tried to get my hand in there to twist out the bulb- was almost impossible .

I gave up for today running out of sunlight, going to try again tomorrow.

I see the instructions say to push off in the back opening the cylindical tab off the post thing to allow the new bulb to fit?

so as im standing over the housing its counter clock wise to take out? so im twisting to the left?
