replace blown 1076 bulbs

I have a Crusader 320 RTL with 3 pendant lights over the sink/counter.
Well one of them has burnt out, no big deal, so I thought.
I have no idea what a person has to do to remove the bulb from the socket.
Thinking this 1076 bulb would be similar to a 1056 I pushed but wouldn't turn.
I have tried to just turn and the shade turns, hold the shade and turn, the socket turns.
I have even tried to just pull the bulb out, this really doesn't seem like a good idea.
I read somewhere here on the forum that one has to dismantle the whole light assmebly...........really? I'm pretty sure there are campers out there that have no clue on how to do this so I would think that idea is out.

Does anyone actually know how to remove the 1076 bulb from the socket without breaking the shade?

Thanks
John

P.S I hear/read alot about the LEDS is it worth it?

Had the same problem with lights over the sink, disassembled the fixture, put on gloves and pushed-twisted until the bulb came out. Apparently it had corroded and was stuck in the socket. Installed new bulb, but first coated it and the socket with dielectric grease to prevent corrosion.

Well I finally removed the bulb from the socket.
Yep had to disassemble the fixture.
I removed the 2 screws holding the fixture in place, unscrewed the shade, pulled some wire out from the ceiling, pushed everything up and pulled the socket part out past the shade here I could actually see the darn thing.
Anyway I pushed and turned, pulled and nothing.
Pushed and turned one more time and poof, came out like it was suppose to..........hmphWhy didn't the bulb pop out like this in the first place?
Anyway there was no corrosion.
Now I have to find who sells these 1076 bulbs.

Maybe look into the LED's

Your local Canadian Tire should have those bulbs.

Are the contacts in the socket spring loaded?
While you have it apart look for interference.

All you should need to do is push the bulb into the socket and twist.

Same issue here - very hard to push and turn them out, but it can be done.

I had these burn out quickly too and replaced them with these LEDs:
BA15D 1142 1076 High Power Car LED Bulb 30 5050SMD DC12V Warm White | eBay

Be sure you get the 30 x 5050 type which have the same lumen output as the incandecents.
Very happy with them so far.

Could you tell what was making it hard to push in?

Thought Canadian Tire would have these but they didn't. Went to 3 different stores niether one had them.

Didn't see any interference, base of bulb was clean. Not sure why it was so hard but as I mentioned earlier the bulb suddenly came out easliy like it should.

Might try the other 2 for the halibut.

DiElectric Grease

Dab a very small amount on the base.
