Question problem replacing daytime running light

Replaced new daytime running light on 500 pop, which went well until replacing lamp housing in back of reflector, when lamp fell out into front of reflector. Can someone tell me how to remove whole light assembly to access lamp? Cheers.

I've done this...

I bought a cheap telescopic screwdriver with a magnetic end. If you bend it a bit you can pull the base of the bulb back out.

Re: problem replacing daytime running light

Someone suggested aquarium tubing taped to hoover nozzle. Tried this and with careful manoeuvre and patience works a treat. Need to coax bulb into position to get a good suction and central to ease the bulb out nose first. It took me two attempts.
