    Does anyone know how to change the bulb in this low voltage Kichler Outdoor fixture?

    Unscrew the screw at the bottom of the shroud, pull the shroud off, pull the bulb out....put in the new bulb, put the shroud back on, and tighten the screw. Shouldn't take more than 30 seconds. Make sure the new bulb is the correct one for that fixture.

    Whatever you do, don't upsize the lamp wattage.

    Well I got the housing off and removed the bulb, but it seems to be connected to the bezel (see pictures below). Can I ask you guys for help one more time? How do I remove the bulb from the bezel...it seems to be very tight and does not want to budge.

    that IS the bulb... the whole thing is the lamp. Dont remove the capsul.

    An MR16 bulb comes complete with the whole thing you pictured. :dizzy:

    Okay, thank you...now I REALLY feel stupid!! It just seems strange that they would manufacture it so that the entire unit had to be replaced.

    Whatever you do, don't touch the "bulb" inside when you replace it. You will damage it with the oil from your skin.
