I have this shower light, as shown here:

enter image description here

There are two screws holding the plastic cage onto the fixture, which I removed. However, I am still unable to remove the cage (I tried twisting it and pulling on it).

The fixture itself cannot be removed by twisting or pulling.

How do I proceed with replacing the light bulb?


Probably a sticky rubber gasket that has kinda adhered to the cage frame over time. Try spraying a penetrating lubricant (you know, the yellow and blue can with the little tube for the nozzle) into the crack and giving it a few taps. Then try your twist (counterclockwise) method again.


We have the same fixture. It's just stuck. Pull down while holding the glass firmly and work your fingers around the gasket. It will eventually come loose. We replaced the bulb with a LED so it won't need to be replaced again in my lifetime.
