Light bulb replacement

Hi,

I have a light bulb that seems to have burnt out.
Please help me to figure out
1. what type of light bulb it is so that I can purchase the replacement
2. how to unattach the bulb

If I'm going about these the wrong way I would also appreciate corrections.

Thank you!

The plug should just pull off the back of the bulb. The bulb is what is pictured below.
The replacement details are on the outside of your bulb. You are looking in the front at the back.

Yours is more than likely..... 50watt and 12volt.

Thank you for your reply!

I've just uploaded photos of the back of the bulb, and they don't seem to look like the bulb you uploaded a photo of. Would you please advise me further?

I added an arrow to your picture................
Hold the silver disc in one hand and the bulb in the other hand.... now pull apart.

Those halogen bulbs can sometimes really stick in their sockets. I sometimes have to use a small flat blade screwdriver to get them out.

Once you have the bulb out you might want to look at the store or online for a LED replacement. Make sure the voltage and AC vs DC match up but there are LED's available in many cases. They run much cooler and consume much less energy.
