How to remove this light?

One of the 4 lamps embedded in the surround of the large Heki has started flashing uncontrollably - that's the 2nd.

The last one was replaced by the dealer. I don't have a spare. I'd like to just remove this particular lamp in the meantime but I don't see how the wires are attached.

Anyone know?

hi and hope you had a good night


i would have thought there was a terminal block a little further inside the hole where the light fits


unfortunately sometimes the van makers make the cables tight

As Barry mentioned, the light fitting and its cable needs to be gently teased out a bit more to access the fittings connector plug.

Thanks folks, so if I turn off the 12v, I can safely try to tease it out? If I find the terminal block, I can then unscrew the wires to the light fitting?

Do I then have to tape up the terminal before turning the 12v back on, or is it safe as is?

As long as there are no exposed terminals it should be OK.

I removed the 20A fuse from internes.... Not that one.

It's a Schaudt Elektrobloc EBL 30.

Gonna try and make sense of the manual, if I can find it!

Have looked at the manual, but none the wiser.
