Ok so slid the little hatch in the wheelarch to access the bulb and guess what,it dropped inside.Where the hell has it gone ? Have stuck my hand in there all over can't find it.This must have happened to someone else,thanks.Managed to change the bulb ok without dropping that.

Not sure. Could you put a magnet in a stick and try fishing it out? Or maybe just leave it there, not sure if it would do any harm?
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

It's plastic so that wouldn't work unfortunately,I will probably just screw a plastic strip over the opening for now to keep the water out.

If you can unscrew arch liner and pull it back from bumper slightly the piece will probably drop out.
