Glad to hear that you got it apart without breaking it, Alex!
Yeah, we haven't yet touched ours but I keep that thread bookmarked because when the bulb does blow out, we probably will go with an LED replacement. Nice to know that yours wasn't showing any signs of burning. We are not really concerned about a fire hazard because we usually have that light on for only brief periods of time. It's not like it's on for hours ...a few minutes at the most.
Wannabe, again, in that thread referenced, Jeff suggested a place to buy a fixture if you need one. There's another thread where somebody mentioned another place to buy one but I don't have that one handy right now. Click here
for Jeff's post on where to buy the fixture and here
