    And I really did think about how to phrase that too.

    Even inspectors don't see or think of everything. Too much stuff out there. Manufacturers need to do a better job with their stuff. We should all call and e mail manufacturers when we run into such things.
    Yes, I'll be happy to do a first class job for less than anyone else and take a dollar a week for 10 years.

    BTW, most are accessible by removing the can by the 3 or 4 small screws around the bottom.

    Have tried to remove the actual recessed fixture portion from that housing yet ?

    From what I see on spec sheet, it looks almost identical to the Juno 2” LED, and the driver with wiring compartment actually slides out of the 2-1/2” hole down below the ceiling ....

    It looks like this part in the pic is inside that large IC enclosure. I think you can leave he wiring long through the compartment but idk. Open it up and let’s see what’s inside.
