Hello. as long as you have turned the socket about 1/4 turn counterclockwise? it will come out, may have to twist slightly left and right, very slightly but that is how it is removed,The thing is it has a rubber oring to seal moisture out so,, I have seen that oring stick, It then requires a bit more effort like pliers to grab and pull or more prying with a pick tool etc. It will come out.
