turn signal light bulb replacement...bulb not turning

I replaced the back turn signal/break light bulbs (cleaned up the fixture with WD40) and now the bulb goes in but does not turn in order for the small nub to go into groove. Any advice other than using needle nose pliers and breaking the bulb which almost happened?

I had the same thing happen with my turn signal light on my car. I broke the bulb and used a needle nosed plier to remove the filiment and base. Then I took a good look at it with a flashlight and found I was 180• off in putting it in.
Good luck.

If it is a dual filament bulb. The pins are offset. One is further down on the bulb base and the notches in the socket as well. The bulb must be orientated properly.
