I was attempting to replace a simple light fixture on level one of our two story home. As I went to install the new fixture, I discovered the bracket attachment point on the old electrical box was stripped on one side. This was a box on bracket (between braces) installed, I assume, new with the home in '89. I took the box off the bracket, thinking I may have access to remove the bracket - no such luck.
So, what I am stuck with is a bracket, surrounded by insulation, right in the way of any old-work electrical boxes that I've been able to find in town.
I have never attempted drywall work, plus I'm looking at a spackled ceiling, so I am attempting to avoid cutting if I can.
My question is this: How can I remove the old bracket (without starting a fire using a metal cutting bit on my Dremel)?
