I want to replace an outdoor wall light but I cannot remove it from
the wall. It is a modern stainless steel lantern on an arm with a
circular base attached to the wall. I assumed that undoing the two
bolt heads on the base would release it from the backplate but it does
not. There must be some other mechanism keeping it attached. What
could that be?
Removing the screws should replease the cover, not the whole
assembly. It could be that there is corrosion inside the cover
which is stopping it being removed. It looks like a bit of BF&I
might be necessary.
