For those who have done this, does the bulb housing simply pull straight out? I unscrewed the fastener on mine but the housing was still firmly in place and I couldn't get it moving with my hands. Want to be sure there isn't any trick before I start shoving a trim removal tool/blade under the gasket to pop it off.

There in there pretty firmly. At least mine were. I used a trim tool to loose it.

Finally did this today. FWIW, on my car the housing fit so precisely that I couldn’t even get a trim tool or blade in to pop them out. I finally got them to drop out by lightly knocking on the trunk just about the license plate. Car looks so much better with LEDs.
