      Can you use the tool to remove the copper end from the teeth, I have only every set up one, never modify. If not, I don't really want to strip the wire back too much otherwise wire will be too short!
      They usually have a little hook on the side to pull out wires - Draper 40417 Punchdown Tool: Amazon.co.uk: DIY & Tools

      After looking at the wiring behind the faceplace, that is definately your problem.

      You need to remove the wires from the back of the socket an re-wire them. You can normally just carefully pull the wires out, and reattach them using a punch down tool. The link in the above post looks good for a cheap one.
