    Difficulty replacing the circlip in halogen lights 5th Apr 11 at 12:51 AM
    Ok, my living room and kitchen has halogen downlights, the sort that have a metal circlip on that looks like a curved M that pops off with a tiny bit of force.

    I replaced bulbs that blew but cannot get the clip back in, or at least work out how to do it.

    My neighbour knows how and keeps promising to show me how but never does.

    Its going to be simple I know but without a video or personally shown how to do it it may be hard!

    All I can see online is someone saying to squeeze it and push bulb in place
