Default Busted bulb

Was trying to remove spot lite bulb by passenger side door and it shattered. Now I am unable to remove it to replace with new LED. How do I get it out? Tried pliers, needle nose pliers and tweezers nothing works! Any help is appreciated!

"spot light bulb"? I assume you mean the light that that is on the side of body on the outside. My RT 190 is under cover for the winter otherwise I would look at my light.

Can the whole light receptacle be taken out, then you can work on it inside.

First, pull the fuse. I would try some liquid penetrant first, PB Blaster or Kroil (difficult to find) are far more effective than WD 40, which is technically a water displacement liquid good for keeping things from rusting. Soak it over several days and gently wiggle it both ways to loosen it up. If there is major corrosion between the bulb base and the receptacle, you may have to replace the whole fixture anyway.

Show us a picture so we can see what the broken part looks like.

Ensure the fuse is removed. Then check this link, I prefer the potato method.

It is the small reading light inside by passenger door. Don't have to worry about broken glass as there is none left! Will try all suggestions and hope one of them works. Thanks to all
