The center glass rotates counter clockwise about 1.5" approx and then drops out of the metal frame. Bulb is a 20 watt, 12 Volt DC G4 bulb
I'm also in the process of replacing the ones over the couch and bedroom headboard with LED type. Thes G4 are way too hot when you are under them.

Looks like this.

Iggy have you actually removed one of the bulbs? That is the way it is supposed to work but I had to gently pull the entire light down and hold the back side to turn the glass cover, just FYI if the simple method does not work. The lights are held in cut-out by a spring loaded lever on each side and you slide the springs back into cut-out. These bulbs go out often.

I didn't have to pull the fixture down like you mentioned but I did have to hold the gold outer ring with one hand and use the other to turn the center flat glass part that is removed.

It sure isn't that easy.

I just received my LED from China. It took about 8 days and saved me a bunch of money.
I bought 10 - 20 watt, 12vdc bulbs from China for $5.77 each ($57.77) and came by registered mail. Camping World sells them for $19.95 each plus tax.

Paid using PayPal and bought from this site.

Mine just arrived and I hooked one up to a 12 volt DC power.
WOW! These 20 watt versions are very bright. A lot more than I expected. My wife at first thought they were too bright but liked them when I pointed it down and not into her eyes.

Glad you also found the price reasonable.
They came registered mail and they asked for my signature.
Packing was good but funny coming from China. They love bubble rap.

John


PS I ordered on Jul 15th Sunday and it arrived today July 30th and the folks who send out the emails keep you posted when it is shipped and give you a USPS tracking number. Can't beat that.

Thanks Iggy, I am in New England now but when I get home, I am ordering. I haven't checked all the lights but are all the same bulb, over bed, and over counters and couch?
