Are you saying the actual plastic light bulb socket is broken? If it were me: I'd head to the parts department at your local Ford dealer and order the replacement item. Then from there, you should see how it clicks into the tailgate... Which would then allow you to apply proper plier pressure to remove the busted one.

Oh I get it... You need to remove the rear door bezel above the plate. Uh, I have no idea on that. Time for a shop manual.
