This type of light is a real PITA. I broke the lens on one of these trying to get the cover off to replace the bulb. I have 7 of these lights and have so far replaced 5 with different lights. I never could get the lens/bezel off any of these darn lights. Very frustrating

If they break, looks like new lights all around..........Hate to be somewhere and really need the light and have it burn out and not be able to replace it.

Great. More designed obsolescence.

What kind of lights did you replace them with? We were thinking of putting in LEDs instead of the halogens.

I was able to try this with one of the lights above the sofa (easier to access) and indeed, after some effort, was able to push the lens in and rotate it . . . funny story though, because it had been siliconed in the metal ring it wouldn't pop out of it and just would rotate and rotate and rotate - so I eventually pried it out of the ring and broke it in half.

So, now I'm rather reticent to try this with the light over the sink and break that lens as well . . . any additional ideas you might have to solve for this conundrum would be AWESOME!

The larger lights are the ones where the lens twists out. On the smaller lights the whole fixture (including the chrome ring) twists out. This is probably why it was siliconed in and broke.

I have a 2011 360, no problem on this and ones over sofa the silver ring is the only part to move, turn counter clockwise and the both ring and glass come down, uses g4 style bulb 10w, has halogen in it. I replaced all with leds. Amazing how much less heat.
