Outdoor BulkHead Light - Confused.Com

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

Really hoping for some collective advice! Like a fool I offered to look at a friends outside light as it (and I quote) "doesn't work". So of course the first thing I want to check is the bulb. 

But..........I can't even work out how to get the cover off :(:(

I would have thought it unscrewed but it just spins round (in either direction).

I don't want to rip it off and break it!

 

any pearls of wisdom out there?

 

Pictures of said offending light:

I have one just the same and the cover just pulls off, give it a good tug!

Look carefully where the opal difuser joins the back plastic back. There will be a slot somewhere, usually at least two, to insert a flat screwdriver and turn to pop the front off.

 

Put a low energy lamp in. If it's got a filament lamp, chances are the wire is overheated and brittle now.

Yep, spring-loaded clips I believe. Just be careful! :ph34r:
