difficulty in replacing hi-beam bulbs

Anyone else has problem with replacing the high beam bulbs. I was able to remove the connector from the bulb base. I twisted the bulb but had to really jiggle with the bulb just to get it out. I now have problem putting in the new one or even the old one. It does not seem to take the "push and twist" motion. It would only go in two of the three cutouts. It seems tight but don't know if the sitting angle would eventually knock it loose and/or affect the DRL light pattern.

Bought the van used so not sure of the previous owner's care of the van. One reason I hate buying used.

Re: difficulty in replacing hi-beam bulbs

Use a mirror to be sure exactly how the three tabs are spaced, and that they match exactly the tabs on the bulb. And that you have the right bulb (see your owners manual). The previous owner might have jammed a bulb in there incorrectly.
