Default Victory light bar bulb

I need to replace a bulb in my cross roads light bar, and I am having trouble removing the bulb from the socket, is there a special trick to remove the bulb or does it just pull out. I don't want to mess something up. Thanks for your help

if u r talking bout the fog lights you have a wire clip that u have to take off then then u may have to twist it one way or the other and it should pull out if i remember right i had changed mine to a kuryakyn led spotlight last year

I found the wire clip but do I have to unplug the wires connected to the bulb and replace the whole thing. I can't get the bulb out.

Thanks I will give it it a try again tomorrow as it is getting dark here. I may be asking more questions if I can get this done. Appreciate your help.

Can you tell me where you got your bulbs I went to several auto parts store and all they had were 55W and I was told that they may cause a problem. Are you aware of any problems they cause. What size of bulb do you use. I checked at the victory dealer and they have the same one I have. The ones at advanece auto parts were sylvania bulbs and were 6.99 for the 55w compared to 13.99 at the dealer for the 25 w. Thanks again for your help.

I tried the 55w bulbs and after awhile they can burn your wire
I ordered my lights from amazon but u can also look on eBay but at the time I ordered mine amazon had the cheapest price

If its brighter light you want, don't go to higher wattage, instead, keep the same wattage but go for more lumens. Look for conversion bulbs, such as LEDs with an H3 base, if that's what's used in those lights. Look into what PIAA offers, or this link to Amazon.......
