hi,I have just moved into a place and one of the kitchen downlighter bulbs
has blown,I cannot see how to replace it other than removing the big spring
holding the whole thing in the attic only thing I can read on the back is
click GZ015 can anyone advise.
There are two possibilities (well, two *likely* possibilities), the
bulbs may be low voltage or mains, they will look similar in both
If they are low voltage (i.e. 12 volts) then they just pull straight
out, you'll need a suction cup type extractor if you don't want to
take the whole thing apart.
If they are mains then it's twist and pull like an ordinary bayonet
bulb but often a harder twist, a suction type extractor may help but
you may get away with just using your fingers.
I take it they are similar to this :
The bulb could be held in by small spring clips that you can pull away
from the bulb allwing the bulb to be removed, but as the previous
poster said you might need a small suction cap to pull the bulb out
once you moved the clips. You can get them from most diy shops B&Q
etc. I have managed to flick the bulbs out with a small plyers and
screwdriver in the past but i wouldnt advise it if.
