If that's the kind I think it is, it pulls straight out; it's just held in place by friction. Use a towel or something so if it breaks you don't slice your hand, and wiggle it back and forth a bit along the long socket axis. EDIT: These are called a Glass Wedge Bulb.

Flip one side from L1 to L2 Your switches are intended for both single-pole and multi-way (multi-location) applications; as a result, both the "up" and the "down" positions on the switch connect COM to another terminal (either L1 or L2, depending on which position we're talking about), instead of having only one position that connects the terminals together,...

The wire can be removed either by firm pulling or jabbing a screwdriver in the slot release there, but then, the spring will be damaged and will no longer hold reliably. You would need to replace ...

The crossbar and the cut yellow wire suggest that a lamp was previously installed there. It is OK to install a lamp yourself but to comply with code you must call a licensed electrician to inspect your work. I can see from the picture that the ground (green bundle) is being used as a neutral connection (white wires) and the end of the yellow wire is just ...
