Are we talking about the same thing? It doesn't take any effort to take that light out. And if you're replacing the festoon bulb you have to take it out anyway. It literally took me 30 seconds to get it out and apart without even looking for instructions. And yes, I tested them. If you read the original post, you would see that the same bulbs that worked in the back seat map lights didn't work in the front.
