Hi everyone, new here. Sorry if this may have been posted before but here goes..

I've been asked by a family member to fit a new light fixture from an old ceiling rose pendant to this ikea one.. SKURUP Pendant lamp - black - IKEA - https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/skurup-pendant-lamp-black-80407114/

Please see picture of the connector block attached to the L and N on the new light

Also see picture of old ceiling rose connections, switch live and loops etc.

Was wondering how to best connect it all up, I.e. taking the connector block off and wiring the L and N to the old rose or connecting the old wires to the new lights block?

If the latter, in which order would they go?

Thanks In advance

(Ignore the ceiling hook, that was to hold the new light fixture up)

I'm presuming class 2? It doesnt come with an earth attached.

Which wires from the existing fitting would go in the L and N of the connector block?
 
Live into the one with the red sleeved black, neutral to the one with the two blacks.

So just to confirm, all the Lives and the red sleeved black into the L on new fitting and then all neutrals in the N on new fitting?

The red sleeving is the live for the light and the blacks are the neutrals.and all the reds together are loop in and dont use them.

No the three reds keep connected together but no connection to the new fitting.

Ahh so leave the old rose with the 3 reds up and just connect the switch live to the L and the 2 black to the N?
