I had the same problem. I tried everything except brute force. Now I don't know what Philips uses for glue but the cheap chinese bulb I had eventually released the front lens after a strong "no matter what"-type hammer punch in a screwdriver inserted from the bulb's rear side. I was sure I'll break the lens but to my surprise it came out intact. It's risky, anyway. Broken glass shards may come out flying in all directions.
