I dont have the owners manual or repair manual here, have you tried pushing in and turning them, that may work. Other than that I dont know.

Take a pair of curved tongs and go behind the bulbs, they will shoot right out.

thanks for the advice they came out, but now i ran into another problem. i put the blue ones in and they look good. but when the car is off and locked the lights turn off but if you look at them very close, they are still on

If they are LED's, sometimes they take a while to finally go out. At least the LED bulbs in my house do.

don't worry about your lights turning off. LEDs drain much less power, and likewise need less power to stay lit. if you really want them off, unplug your battery. don't worry about it draining the battery - i've left my interior LED strips on all night many times, never had a problem.

the only thing i dont like about them not turning off all the way is that when the domelight is set to the setting to where the door opens the light turns on. when im driving around it is still lit dimly
