After looking on the internet, I found a picture of the lamp socket on Rock Auto. I've been able to turn the socket 90 degrees (took a pair of channel locks to do so) but it will still not come out. Any ideas?

are you trying to change the bulb because it is burnt out?
The lamp looks like it is attached with two screws

The one you linked to says it is for a sedan. I have a 2 dr. One of the 2 bulbs is burnt out so you can literally see on a portion of the plate. They also light up the word "Pontiac" on the back of the trunk lid. There are no screws around it. I'm at a stand still.
