Hello and good day:
Dou you have a Manual for you Freestar?
Go to this link:.....
You may need a small Screw diver to pry the Lens off..You see, the cover is made of sturdy plastic, but the escutcheon holding it in isn't as strong and can be scratched or gouged very easily with a screwdriver, knife or other pointed sharp objects. I used a mini swiss army knife and carefully inserted it in the slot and prying the tab back slightly, and as it is giving way, insert the blade slightly deeper, kind of like a reverse shoehorn. Then slowly draw the blade back out, and the lens cover will come with it. To replace, use only your hand with a swift but light "slap" with open hand, as opposed to a closed fist. To answer your question more precisely though, simply use your fuse puller to hold the bulb steady, and slide it straight up-wards until you feel a slight "click", and thats it.
I hope this helps..
Good luck and good repairing.
