    You might list the things you have already tried - the most obvious thing I would say is unscrew the bulb but surely you tried that already?

  • Did you try pulling it straight down???

    Please get a sharp, well-lit photo. I can't see any detail in that one.

    Are you trying to replace the entire fixture (based on the condition of the paint on the trim ring, that's entirely reasonable), or just the bulb?

  • pull the whole fixture straight down. i know it's scary the first time... it might be stuck, but it's spring loaded and made to be pulled out.

1 Answer 1


if a GU16 bulb, then you have to push -in- and turn. This is due to the little 'nubs' on the end of the connectors
