LED Turn Signal Help

Hey guys, I have been trying to remove these old stock turn signals bulbs from the socket and replace them with LED bulbs but I can't get them to budge. I tried pushing them in and turning counterclockwise but not thing works :/

That type of bulb pulls out of the socket. If it doesn't pull out easily there's probably hold down clips that need to be released.

Do you know what base this bulb has? My 2016 428GC has the same bulb type. I had purchased some LEDs to replace them (the same bulb type I used for my previous 2014 320 w/ xenons); but when I pulled these out, I was surprised to find it was a different bulb type. The owner's manual refers to instructions for the other "push in and rotate counter-clockwise" bulbs.

It was used a lot in E series. Why the OP has it in an F30 or you do in an F36 is puzzlement. You're supposed to have a PY24w
