• How can I remove fuel/oil stains from a carpet please?

I have bought new light fittings but the bits to connect the wires into are so small there is only room for 3 wires. The other light is ok as it only has 4 wires to connect (1 live, 1 neutral, 2 earth) and I have been able to do this by squeezing the 2 earth in together, but the 7 wires in the other one just won't go.
