Is that the license plate bulb? If so, you have to wiggle it back and forward or use needle nose pliers like I did. I did both.

Also, you will be better off using a wedge bulb like this one,

Order from V-LEDS.com and you won't be disappointed. They have prices for everybody. I recommend the HP (High Power) bulbs with a built in circuit to prevent voltage spikes.

As for the license plates, get High Power LEDs but not too bright because it would look ridiculous.

No. Just the bulb. The bulb comes right out. Wiggle wiggle wiggle. It was tough for a lot of people but it comes out.

if you can get your hands on a rubber coated needlenose pair of pliers youll be set. itll be cake. getting them in takes some finagling too but no more than 10 minutes from start to finish id say.

be careful not to brake the bulb because that is no fun to get out... believe me. had to be very careful to pull the remaining parts out by the filament of the bulb. it was easier but nerve racking.

i also agree to the vleds ones posted above. had them on two cars. love em.
