Thanks and that's what I did with the first bulb. However I do not consider
that to be a viable solution and I should not have to break a bulb to
remove it, esp. if it is not defective.  I'm thinking about a little rubber
funnel or something that will grip the bulb while ai push and turn, but
have not come up with the proper tool yet.

Dave Porter just responded:  A 1.5 inch long fuel/coolant hose...presto
