See, now you can actually take advantage of the full 55watts. which I am sure seems like more of a difference than swapping bulbs with dirty lenses.

You are saying the metal shaft on the thumb screw is stuck in where it threads? Do you have enough sticking out to grab onto it with something? I would try some PB blaster.

can you dremel/cut a slot into the shaft so that you can use a flat head screw driver to give it a twist?
