    Hi all
    This may be a silly question, but I can't work out how to remove the bulbs from the reading lamps in the corners above the beds and setees on my Hobby 700! Can anyone help? I think they are the halogen type with two pins and should just pull out, bot the rim on the holder seems smaller than the bulb!
    This is the light in question

    unfortunately your attachment failed but have you tried removing the bezel ring.

    usually they turn one way or the other maybe a quarter turn...may be stiff if they havent been touched for some time.

    Hi
    I have managed to get one bezel off but by force rather than properly. It seems the bulb holder is secured to the ring by 2 springs which then keep the bulb in position. The ring does not twist but I do need to get it off to take the bulb out. Hopefully these pictures will show more?

    With bezels of different types, though only similar to those pictured, I've found that it is possible to use a thin blade to release one of the springs. That then allows removal of the bezel.
