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.

tail light replacement

We are trying to fix a right tail light because half is not working. Got the fixture out and see that we can get a whole new fixture but the wires do not have a plug so we don't know how to get the fixture out to be replaced. Help

Hello all, when we redid our tail lights, we found seized bulbs-rusted connections-bad grounds. As TG pointed out the bulbs/sockets are either single or double type (1056/1141 and or 1157/2057) which are old style automotive pieces.

My suggestion is cut the wires as close to the socket, then splice the new socket in...good as new. I left the bulbs as incandescent rather than LED. This, to my thinking, was because these bulbs are powered from the tow vehicle rather than the RV battery.
