Removing recessed lighting can

Hi, could someone please advise on how to remove a recessed lighting canister pictured here? I am trying to get it down to re-wire for an led replacement but I cannot get the canister down, no clips or screws seen on the inside of the can, I cannot figure out how to get the can out. Any suggestions please? Thank you. Name:  20160528_071252_resized.jpg

Welcome to the forums.

I have exploded views of that recessed lighting fixture but I cannot find them.

The can is held in with clips at the three locations that are visible. Hold on to the trim, pull it straight down while gently turning it. It will come down.... it's only a pressure fit.

Thank you Pj, it worked! I just needed to know if it could be removed, and kept pulling and it finally came out. Thanks.
