Just my luck. Have a 2019 volt and bulb fell in the housing. Has anyone found a way to get a lightbulb out of the housing without removing the number and everything?

Guys I’m a mechanic, this trick works and saves you hours stripping the front out, saving customers time and money.

Finally got it out last night. Had to use gorilla glue duct tape over a usb cord for to pull it back as it went towards the highbeam. Then used a flexible cord with a magnet attached to the end to grab the prongs and slowly fish it out.


Perhaps a flexible spring loaded grabber something like this https://www.amazon.com/Cleaning-Stainless-Bendable-Cleaner-Bathroom/dp/B08TR5FM2B

Snake it in, grab the tail with the claws, carefully extract.

Yo, that tool looks handy. Will save this if it were to happen again.


Hoover with a bendy straw taped on to it.
Switch on and suck the lightbulb out
Thats smart. I have a car vacuum tyhat i could have used witgh a straw.
