I had the same issue and I ended up just prying the lamp bezel down with a flat blade screwdriver and then pressing it back up when done. Those screws are a joke and don't really have threads on them anyway.

Ordered 8/17/06 - 2007 Ford Mustang GT - Alloy Grey, 5 speed, 18" fanblades, Interior Upgrade Package, Premium Interior Trim, GT appearance package, wheel locks, spoiler delete, 3.55 limited slip rear end. Scheduled for production 11/6/06.

slide a flat screwdriver under the head of the screw and give a little pressure on it as you turn it with another screwdriver. This should make it bite. I believe the bulb pulls out, not screw.....don't quote me on that though.

Drive it like you stole it.

2005 GT - Torch Red - Cervini Ram Air - Cervini Body kit w/Cat Side Exhaust - More billet items than I can list - MGW Variable Throw Shifter ----the list goes on......

Those really arent screws. They are more of a push in type trim fastener. I use a pick with a fine point to get under the edge of the middle part of the fastener & pop it out. Its the part that looks like a screw. It spreads the insides out to hold firm like a wall anchor.

Obama whines that we don't build stuff like the Hoover Dam anymore. With his EPA in charge nothing CAN get built.....ANYMORE!

If you put the Obama administration in charge of the Sahara desert they would find a way to run out of sand in a year....-ME!
