Removing cover of Apollo Circular bathroom ceiling light

Postby Steve K » Sun Mar 09, 2008 8:36 pm

I would like to replace the bulb with a low energy one. But I cannot work out how to remove the casing so that I can get access to the bulb. This light is not flush with the ceiling. It is a PrimeL??? (could be PrimeLight but I can't see the last 3 digits clearly) Apollo Circular LBLP325 IP44.

Help with this would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Steve

If it's the one i think it is look where the cover joins the light. there will be an indentation, use a large flat screwdriver or a coin and you can just flick it off.

I know this is over a decade later but the advice above really helped me remove my Apollo Circular lighting.

One additional tip: if your casing is really stuck like mine was, put a screwdriver in the notch in the notch between the clear/translucent casing and the body of the light, and hit it with a hammer.
Mine pinged off first time having tried a screwdriver and coin to get it off.

Cheers!

Hi, I've created an account just to say thank you for the answer, I think I was gonna drag the whole ceiling down with the lamp! I believe it's an Apollo circular light from 2006.
I managed to remove the cover using a big coin and pivoting on the indentation. Standing on a chair helped quite a bit.
Cheers!
