Wear and Tear

Depending on how often the little machine starts and its age, the inside of the bulb will eventually get gooey, causing it to stick. If a brittle bulb cracks around the seal, air will leak out the side rather than force fuel from the tank into the bulb, also causing a collapse.

Hold one side of the black glass insulator at the bottom of the bulb with your pliers. Twist it up to snap the glass apart. The glass here is thick, so it will take a lot of force to actually break it. Make sure that you hold onto the bulb firmly with your other hand as you work.
For screw-base lightbulbs, turn anti-clockwise until you can remove it fully. For slot-base lightbulbs, pinch the sides and turn the bulb anti-clockwise for half a turn to release it. Insert the new bulb – screwing or turning in a clockwise direction – and ensure it is secure.
