    I'd like to see no copper where the brown enters the block... but, the last one I rewired took longer than 10 mins as I didn't have a long enough screwdriver

    If you squeeze the white strain relief, with a pair of pliers, as it goes through the metal work, it will come out cable and all and you can do away with the connector completely...no need for tape

    Another one would be best practice... but they tend to be crimped... its back to the right tools again

    ...In the meantime either see if you can open it to release the wire & insert the fresh - or screw the wire down to the reflector with a suitable washer

    Yes...they like CFL in veg...lower the better but keep them dust free otherwise they get hot

    Also, I'd just snip the crimp off and use that as a washer, strip the earth insulation back about 20mm and make a loop, put this under crimp and screw down
