How do I change this light bulb? What do I do with the wires

How do I change this light bulb? What do I do with the wires etc? Please help!
picture is here:

Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be glad to assist you. It would have been better to see the other side with the lamp. I suspect that it is a bi-pin lamp, which is removed by pushing down on it and turning it counter clockwise.

How did you do? Did the lamp release?

Thank you so much for your response.

Yes I agree I should have given you more pictures or details!

Unfortunately the lamp is not the same as the one you mentioned...

Here is a link to the picture of the other side.

There is no way to remove it from this side - the metal surrounding is stuck - so the only way to remove it this way would be to break it off somehow.

So from the first picture, would I have to remove the wires?

I might call an expert, it's very difficult...

But here is another picture if you can suggest something else :)
Thank you.

Try turning the trim Sir bonding the lamp.

It doesn't turn at all. It's basically stuck with super glue or something. Should I just pry it open and maybe break it, but then reapply it with more super glue? Thank you for the help anyway though.

Unusual to be that difficult to remove a lamp. Tell me the manufacturer and model number. I may be able to find some info online.

This is the only thing I could find out about it:

it's a weico asia w-005

but that's only the transformer

i think the main problem is how the lamp was installed into the bathroom's mirror shelf

no idea why it's so difficult though..

I finally did it!

I put a flat based screwdriver on the side of the lamp and kept moving it until the cover finally came out! it's a halogen bulb..

thank you for all your help though :)
