Third brake light bulb...

My daughter has a 2009 G6 and had two bulbs in her third brake light go out...

I went to Auto Zone and purchased two packs of 912 bulbs to replace all three... after fighting with the brake light cover for 20 minutes I was thinking this would be a fairly straight forward process...

Getting the old bulbs out of the 1/4 turn sockets proved to be quite the exercise... after finally getting them out and “plugging” the new bulbs into the 1/4 turn sockets I was rewarded with none of the bulbs illuminating...

I didn’t have my circuit tester with me as I was doing this in the parking lot of her apartment and how difficult can changing a couple of light bulbs be, right???

Anyway, I am going back down to her apartment tomorrow evening to try and get the bulbs working...

I saw something in my limited search about having to solder the new bulbs into the 1/4 turn sockets but it wasn’t really clear... the manual in the glove box was no help either...

Can someone PLEASE tell me what needs to be done to get these bulbs to illuminate?

Any help, advice, etc.... will be GREATLY appreciated!!!

You have more success than me. I couldn't get the brake light cover off at all.
