    Hi, I received some great help here to get me started on removing a ceiling rose and witting to a new ceiling light. I’ve put the loop wires in a Wago 222 connector and the same with the earths (as the light is a double insulated a class 2 fitting), I’ve put the switch live into the new light, but I have 5 neutral wires that need to go into the new light fitting but there just isn’t enough room for them all. What I can use to combat this? All help appreciated, thanks

    for info: this was old setup and new connector:

    Do the same with neutral wires.Terminate them in your wago box. Then supply your line and neutral feed to your fitting using 2core.

    thanks for the reply, I’m not totally clear on this. So I put all 5 neutral wires into another Wago 222 connector. I then connect the neutral from some 2core wire into this also and the other end into the new light fitting? Thanks
