Lights over kitchen island

I Canít remove the twist out bulbs in the drop down lights over the island. Any reason I couldnít just cut the wires at the ceiling cover to remove the light fixture entirely so I can work on it? Use wire nuts to reconnect. Are those bulbs 12v and Could I replace them with some type led and nothing special required to make that conversion? Thanks in advance for any advise

The lights over the island have wedge-type bulbs in them. They pull straight down they do not twist off. Yes you can undo the cover and cut the wires and dismantle the the fixture at the same time you might change the lamp fixture. Then use a quick connect fitting to connect the wires back up again and you're good to go

Cut the fixture wires at ceiling and made it more manageable. The bulb has side tips and it is a twist left to remove type bulb. No markings of bulb type but the tips are at same level on bulb, not offset. Now to see about converting to led
Thanks!
