Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Are you trying to change the front or rear?

is there a trick to accessing the bulb? Do I need a tool?
Buick Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

so basically you just have to play with it with a pair of pliers until it pops out, some feel like they are going to break before they finally come out

turning counter-clockwise with pliers?
Buick Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

yes that is correct, a pair of channel locks or long needle nose will be ideal, and there is no special tool for this just pliers
