    I have an extractor fan in the Rapido and I am about to replace the bulbs with LED...

    Two things:

    See pic attached.

    a) How do I remove the unit?
    b) Any idea as to the rep0lcement type?

    Ta..

    ShiftZZ (hater of everything DIY) ready with the tools in hand...

    A I usually find 2 pounds of force to be not up to the task as you have to strike the object more than once
    14 pounds of force is much better as one blow tends to get the job done much quicker

    Can't really see from the photo whether the bezel is the type which unscrews or a fitting which is held on two side pegs, in which case it can be levered out gently using a thin bladed screwdriver.

    Once the fitting is out it should come apart easily to access the bulb. Type should then be evident but replacement if it is something like a G4 will depend on how it fits - which will dictate back pin or side pin LED.
