Firstly a disclaimer: I'm new to electrics in general so apologies if I'm using the wrong terminology.
I have a new pendant light from IKEA and it looked like a very straightforward installation. It has connections for a live and a neutral wire, and needs a small hook to hang off.
Having taken my existing light rose off, I have 9 wires coming through the ceiling. I have attached a picture of the configuration.
Having browsed this site I think I understand how the setup works. As I understand it I need a chock and that it can be inside the ceiling or outside under the rose as pictured.
My question is: can I just cut the 2 existing pendant wires, right above the white housing and use these two wires to attach my new pendant?
The new pendant rose fits over the transparent plastic in the picture. I would then add the hook next to the ceiling hole.
Any advice, much appreciated!!
