    Went to change spotlight and instead of undoing the clip that holds bulb in stupidly prised outer ring out of ceiling , now black inner casing for bulb not held in ceiling , can I fill gap around this with some sort of filler to hold in place

    Easier to buy a new downlight and pop it in the existing hole.

    Don’t fully understand the problem here, perhaps post a picture of the light fitting

    Sounds like a ‘fire rated’ fitting - so the outer ring that sits on surface of ceiling with an inner ‘can’ that sits inside ceiling void, holding lamp holder and lamp

    Fitting is held in place with 2 spring clips that clamp fitting to underneath of ceiling

    Various methods to hold lamp in place from spring clips to round bezels and others

    Are the springs still attached to the light fitting or have they flown off somewhere inside ceiling ?
