Kitchen Light - Changing Bulb

This is probably a dumb one, but my kitchen light went out and I'm not certain how to change the bulb. Also, what is the name of this type of bulb? Thank you in advance.

Complete your profile so we know where you are from. Looks like a halogen tube. Should slide either left or right and is spring tension activated. Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers as the oils will cause early failure. Use a paper towel or napkin to grab the bulb. Looks like replacement info is on the lamp itself.

I have never seen a ceiling fixture like that. But yes, that's a halogen bulb similar to the tall torchiere lamps.

I can't read it clearly, but I can see a sticker with bulb info. It says something like MAX 150watt Type T RSC.

I would consider changing out these fixtures some day. They are sucking up quite a bit of power.

Thanks. I thought the casing was part of the bulb. Once I got that off, I was good.

Yes I see what you're saying. That shield is to contain glass should the bulb explode.
As Z said, be careful not to touch new bulb with bare hands while installing.
