Trouble Removing Angel Eye Bulb

As the title states, I cannot figure out how to twist the passenger's side angel eye bulb counterclockwise (I'm trying to replace it with HPB LED upgrade). I have big hands which doesn't help... anyone have any tricks?

A friend with smaller hands or a long needle nose pliers with bent end.

Try to loosen the wiring that's in the way (brown ground wire & male to female wire) so you get more room.

Then hire a kid with small hands to give you a "hand" You sure you are rotating counter clockwise as you look at the light from behind?

I had the same problem, held the bulb like I was smoking a cigarette with index and middle finger, that finally worked for me after much frustration...stick with it
