replacing troffer fixture


i want to replace a troffer fixture. because there is a 2x4 a couple of inches above the fixture, i can't see an easy way to turn the fixture to get it out through the diagonal of the opening that it sits in. any suggestions?

Can you disconnect it and lift it enough to move it over to a better opening? If not you might have to take apart the ceiling grid a little.

Sometime you can push it up and slide it to the next grid.

guys, thanks. I guess my brain got tired after figuring out (all by myself) that you take these things in or out on the diagonal, and I didn't think about moving it to an adjacent grid. Yes, I can do that.
oh, duuuuh on my part.
