When I first got our 2008 Brazilian the little round side lens kept disappearing, replacing it got quite expensive! Then I found that these guys Parts@aux-World.com (07736285343) supply a lens for a vauxall, not sure of the model, that fits at a fraction of the cost!. I also sorted out how to stop it falling off with a little blob of bluetac.

The original lenses are a snug fit into the rubber surround but it is easy to miss the fact that they also have a positive locking mechanism. There are pins in the holder for a twist turn action into grooves in the lens cover - just like the bayonet fitting on a light bulb. Took me some time to realise why they fell off when washing the 'van.

AAHA, thanks for this. If, (when) it happens again I'll do some investigating! Cheers.

Yeh - I'd like a set of clear ones. Maybe the Vauxhall part would come in a clear variant.....?
