    Hello Everybody,

    I am having trouble changing a light bulb in my bathroom. The bulb is housed in a white tube within the ceiling. I can pull the housing down freely about an inch but i can't access the top of it. I can't see how long it is.

    I've tried to unscrew the metal rim and glass but without luck. I can't see any clips to detach the bulb.

    Has anyone come across these before? I might be able to pull the housing down further, if i pull harder, or put a bit more effort into trying to unscrew the rim, but i don't want to do something incorrectly.


    Thank you for any help.

  3. It looks like the type where the chrome bezel unscrews but they could just be a bit stuck. You shouldn't have to remove the complete fitting to change the bulb anyway.
