    Hi,

    Have recently moved into a place and need to replace some AU-GUF4011 bulbs. Unfortunately the main part of the housing is still in the ceiling but the clips with the springs that hold the bulbs in place are missing. Does anyone know what they're called or where I can buy replacements?

    Thanks

    It's these, not the bulb but the bit with the springs.

    That looks like part of the light fitting, nothing to do with the lamp.

    If you can pull a fitting down gently you may be able to find a manufacturers name/model number but it looks like a terrible design.

    Does the lamp not stay in place without that spring around it?

    It might be easier to just find a washer that fits around the cap of the lamp and drill some holes for some little springs

    This is what the light looks like when in the ceiling. The previous picture shows the inner ring part, which screws in, so I don't think I would be able to replace just with any washer.

    If that bottom ring stays in place without the spring/washer, then I wouldn't worry about it. It looks like it's just to hold the lamp into the ring, which isn't strictly necessary.

    No, that whole part holds the light bulb into the fitting. Here's what it looks like without that part. The bulb just hangs out.

    Oh I didn't realise it was the ENTIRE white ring, I thought it was just the springs and washer that were missing.

    Yea, as Rocky has said, you're gonna have to replace the entire fitting. May as well replace them with something more current whilst you are, either LED GU10 lamps, or just an entire LED fitting.
