2006 Autotrail toilet light

Good afternoon all and thank you in advance for any assistance and advice you can give me. The toilet light in my Tracker has bitten the dust and I need to extract the light unit from its fixings. There doesn't appear to be any visible easy way to extract it and I'm loathe to pull too strongly at it in case I break it. Pictures of light attached

Welcome to the forum Palamos.

I'd hazard a guess that those 3 projections are caps hiding screwheads?

Hello Palamos.
Have you tried a slight twist like a bayonet fitting?

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

The three screw caps just retain the circular diffuser, the whole unit is held in place by spring clips.
Well thatís how the same lights in my 2007 Arapaho are released.

I have similar and those are just nuts, try using a rubber mat to turn them, you may need pliers be gentle in case I am wrong, replace with LED as they usually last longer and of course save energy.

Iíve always found the two pins of the LED replacements too long for these particular light fittings, I just snipped with wire cutters each of the legs to the required length.
