    Rear registration plate light query ?

    My near side registration plate light is out .
    (A4 cab) But when I went to change bulb it screw head is "rounded" can't get it out , dont think I can get the angle in to drill out screw , any ideas if I can get the whole trim section off from inside and either replace the whole light section or get the light section out ?
    Cheers folks
    I bought a convertable in the wettest country in the world who says Scotsmen dont have a sense of humour !

    It's a common issue:

    number plate light bulb holders

    Depending how bad they are you may be able to drill them out, another way is to drill around the plastic lens and use mole grips on the screw head. A new holder, pair of lens's and bulbs usually work out £50 ish.
