    Hi,

    I'm a complete new comer to all things DIY and I have just removed the old light from the front room in my new house and am replacing it with a standard single pendant style light.

    The wires do not come out of the ceiling far enough to fit into the terminal box.

    What can I do?

    All advice welcome!

    Can you get access to it under the floor of the room above?
