Does anyone know how to remove this light access?

Iím trying to access the light bulb area in this bedroom light. I was able to access the other side by turning the bottom metal cover left. It turns a small bit and then drops down and pulls off but was very hard. I canít get the other side to budge. Iíve sprayed silicone and let it drop down inside to lubricate and used those rubber jar opener grasps and still no luck.

Anyone have any ideas?

On mine, I twisted the outermost rim around the glass lens. I changed over to LEDs It was a pretty easy task once I figured out how to get things out.

Yup, twist it. I removed the cover from mine and covered the glass with this to dim them:

Thanks Majorairhead!

That part came in today and it worked. I used the larger one to grasp then top half and the smaller one to grasp the bottom ring. It broke it free. I then used the smaller one to wiggle the bottom ring and eventually work it off to insert the lens filter.

Totally AWESOME! Some times a little extra 'persuasion' makes things happen
