I was able to remove metal retaining clip and coverglass but halogen lightbulb is blocked by black plastic ring and there is not enough room between bulb and fitting to remove it.
I am not sure if bulb is gu5.3 or gu10.
I tried below actions which were all unsuccessful:
#1 tried to pull out black plastic ring blocking bulb with tweezers as pliers/head flat screwdriver couldn't get it but no luck
#2 tried to pinch two sides of black plastic ring together to remove but it's a hard plastic so this didn't work
#3 tried to put metal hairclip between black plastic and edge of fitting -didn't work
#4 tried to press halogen bulb up into fitting to see would it release in case gu5.3 but no luck
#5 tried to press halogen bulb up into fitting and rotate anticlockwise in case it was a gu10 no luck
#6 pressed bulb on each side to rotate and while there was a little movement, no rotation
#7 squeezed metal hairclip between bulb and fitting and moved around circumference of bulb to see would this loosen it but no luck
#8 got hoover and tried to suck bulb out of socket in case gu5.3 but no luck
#9 used blutack to pull out bulb in case gu5.3 but no luck
There is no attic to go to fitting from above to move as I am in apartment.
The last two options I know of are get duct tape and try to make a handle to attach to bulb and pull down or cover eyes with plastic glasses and break bulb, removing it with potato/pliers.
The bulb is very tight in the recessed fitting and I cannot see how to remove the fitting/trim without taking chunk plaster from ceiling or black plastic ring
Attached photo shows bulb in fitting with black plastic ring after metal clip and cover glass were removed.
Does anyone else have any suggestions?
