I was swapping out my back lights on my 2012 GX 2nd Gen and as I removed the bulb socket from the housing, the bulb fell into the tail light cavity . This sucks. I spent over 2 hours trying to get the bulb out with the smallest set of needle nose pliers and no luck. It got late (and I was getting frustrated), so I placed the new LED bulb in for now. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get it out? FYI, this is the passenger side. I'll post a picture when I get to my computer.

These are all awesome ideas! When it's midnight you loose all sense of creativity. I tried the tape idea but it was pretty short and then I lost the tape inside the cavity. It took me about 30 minutes to pull that piece out with needle nose pliers.
Here are some pictures of the bulb. It's in the bottom right corner.
That thought crossed my mind, multiple times. I looked all over the Internet for a method to remove it, but no luck. Looking inside, I belive this assembly is held by 2 - 10mm bolts. The top bolt has barely any room to get a socket. Also the owners manual identifies the method of going from the bottom up.
