How do you change a lightbulb?

Recommended Posts

I have a light bulb like this: https://www.osram.com/ds/ecat/OSRAM%20DULUX%20D/com/en/GPS01_1027840/PP_EUROPE_Europe_eCat/ZMP_59030/

 

But can't for the life of me figure out how to remove it without feeling like I'm about to break the glass. What am I doing wrong? Would it be a pull? A twist? A bit of both? Is it possible for this type of bulb to become jammed?

 

I know, I'm a thicko.

Don’t apply pressure to glass, I had a trip up to A&E other month pushing a bulb in by the glass.

Use a small flat headed screwdriver between the base of the lamp and lampholder in the light fitting, turn the light off first though.

Actually, on a serious note, I have ceiling downlights in my kitchen. They are simple halogen bulbs. However, the bulb fitting is deeply recessed inside the wider light casing. I can't get a replacement in because I can't see what I'm doing to line up the connections or twist the fecker in place. I even got a little tool that sucks onto the bulb that you can use but I can't get that to work either.

 

Should I just be pulling the whole light fitting out of the ceiling?
