I was on may way to dinner and my friend (driving behind me) noticed my back breaklight was out. I wasnt too happy, but bulbs burn out. I was suprised that a bulb would burn out within a year. The next day I went to go replace the bulb, and when I removed the socket thing, the bulb was missing. Somehow it fell out and into the well of the light. I had to fish it out with some tape and my finger. Now that was fun.
Has this happened to anyone else? I checked to see if I was hit by anyone, cause I dont see how the bulb would just pop out.

i was fearing i had to take out the stupid houseing for the lights, but as I stated in my first post, i was able to fish it out with my finger and some tape. I wrapped the tape (double sided tape) around my finger, stuck it on the bulb and fished it out. Maybe I should do a DIY for getting them out:-D
I just saw an 8 running down the road with a brake light out the other day and thought that it was awfully young to have blown the light. Maybe the same thing happened to him? Weird. I've never really heard of anything like this before.
if this does happen to you dont take it to the dealer, cause they want to charge 60$ alone for labor. My friend just got charged 250$ to install his hard top on a s2k. dealers know how to make money off labor.
