Thought I'd share these picture with you. Note that there should be a lug holder at "A" that looks something like "B" - its melted. The arc point shows the connection point. The contact point is too close to the edge. Metal is far easier to heat at a corner or edge than in the middle. I can't understand why the lugs on the globe holder are offset and not directly opposite. The plastic lug holder is too thin too. Just not well thought through by the designer.

Oh!

I forgot to mention... When you are removing and replacing the fitting, put a cloth or something under the light fitting. It prevents the nuts from falling into the guard well. :eek: They are awful hard to get out if they happen to fall down there:crybaby2:
