I think he means how to remove the bulb from the socket - and to do that you push gently on the bulb until you just feel it start to go in a bit - then twist slightly and pull it out.

Replace them with halogens which are available from NPD and others. Much cheaper than an LED conversion and way brighter than stock.

NPD is national pars depot
www.nationalpartsdepot.com
you may also check other mustang parts stores. These bulbs are made for mustangs. I seriously doubt that they would sell a part if it could fry your electric system.
