Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
I keep trying to remove the socket but can't; this is the left rear bulb; the right rear was replaced several months ago with no problem; again, the tab at the top of the socket seems to prevent the bulb from being removed to replace the bulb. turning counter clockwise will loosen the socket but it places the protruding tab under metal, the opposite of the right one. On the right when turned counter clockwise the tab starts under the metal and appears to the left to allow the socket to be removed; this is in reverse on the left signal.
this did nothing to help; just information from the owner's manual I had already read - will take to dealership and hope for the best
