It's stuck!

So anyone who has changed out their License Plate lights help me out. I got the "passenger" side light out with no problem, but the other one won't budge! Did anyone have this problem because it's really starting to piss me off! I guess it's not a huge deal to leave them stock, it just irks me that every time I try to do even the smallest thing on my car I run into to some sort of problem!

There's also one nut that I can't get off to change out my rear garnish. The deep socket wrench wasn't producing the same results as it did with the other four, so I switched to a regular one. Now I can see it turning, but it's not coming off angry

hey buddy, just changed my rear liscence lights too the other day...you're not alone...the same shit happened to me...then i figured out that you have the turn that one counter-clockwise to get it off...i didnt know that( thought it was goin to be opposite the passenger side one( clockwise)) almost broke that shit off. well i tried counter-clock and click! there it came. hope that helps you.


The phone rings...a sexy voice says "hey baby nobody's home, come on over". So I go over and there's nobody home.

Well, not only do I have my entire light thingy in there, but my dad dropped a wrench while trying to help me get the last nut off so I could switch out the license molding! I told him to be careful and then I hear this loud clank. All I could do was just turn around and look at him in disbelief angry

As soon as I figure a way to get this crap out, I'll be sure to let ya know because trust me it's buggin the shit outta me grin
