Problem Replacing Brake Lamp

I've got a 2002 C230 and the left brake light is out. I've replaced dozens of bulbs for brakes and headlamps before, but never on a Benz. following the manual's instructions, I can get the lower portion of the bulb carrier to release but the top portion won't budge.

Any tips out there? I'd really prefer not to suffer the embarrassment or cost of paying the dealer's mechanic $110/hr to replace a silly $2.60 bulb. Gotta love anonymity on the internet. Thanks.

turn that dial in the middle of the cluster assembly...the whole thing should come out so you can change all the bulbs at least that's how my C280 is made. good luck

The C23o is different. No dial. Just two levers to push together. Looks simple, but can't get the top portion of the carrier to release. Thanks for the try. Anyone else?
