I'm glad I looked here. I was ready to go in from above and move the battery so I could get at the bulb socket. This method was easier--and had the advantage of working, which I can't say was true of the approach I had in mind. The drive was wet and I didn't have my flashlight, so I did it all by feel., seated on an upended plastic bucket. Heavy rubber gloves might help. I almost scored the back of my hand, but managed to avoid that. Excellent advice.
