Question: Bulb Failure

I took the back lights out. I was able to turn and remove all back lights except the right back reverse light. It looks like someone (probably, the previous owner) tried to change the reverse light. The person placed the light in the wrong direction and now it cannot come out of the socket. When I tried to turn the bulb, it turns but not completely as the others. I am not able to pull it out, I do not know what to do next. Some help here will be appreciated.

In those situations I usually break the bulb (into multiple layers of paper bag, with safety glasses on) and then use a needle nose to run and extract the wedge base.

Hope that helps.
