Pull Out Old Light Bulb

If Necessary - Use Loop
Be careful when you remove the old light bulb. If it was recently turned on, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket.

If you have trouble getting a grip on the old bulb, try using a piece of wire with a loop at the end to pull it out.
