Smile Replacing American Products Inground Pool Light

I need to replace the light fixture in my inground pool as my electrician cut the chord because it kept tripping the GFI. Water had gotten in the lense...Anyway, is it just a matter of pulling the old chord through the back of the light fixture from the junction box? The chord goes underneath the diving board, (about 6 feet) and another 8-10 feet until the juntion box. How do you do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just as you stated, remove the old light and get in pool and feed new light cord into hole. With that small a run it should be easy.

Thanks, but...

How do I get the old chord out? It's below two feet of dirt, underneath the diving board etc. Do I literally have to dig all the way under the cement near the diving board and to the back of the pool where the light is located? Should the old chord come out by pulling it through from the junction box? There seems to be zero movement when I pull on the chord from either direction. Are they attached somewhere?
