    Hi, I've an LED light in my bathroom that's failing. I was going to remove it but not sure how, and don't want to damage the fitting. Unlike my kitchen leds which have a twist fitting, the bathroom one has a silver (ish) ring around it. I've turned this anti-clockwise to pull it off but am not sure what to do next. The bulb doesn't push in and feels pretty tight and seems to have a plastic ring around it. I've tried twisting it with my fingers but it's not budging. Do I need a sucker to attach to it and just pull it out? Any help is appreciated, thanks

    Probably an integrated fitting - you will need to replace the whole thing.

    If it were me then I'd head up in to the loft and lift the springs to drop the light. Then back down to the bathroom with the light hanging from the ceiling and attack the light from there.
