When I started the car this morning, the DIS flagged up a bulb error in the number plate light. Closer examination revealed that the bulb has not blown, but the light assembly (the left hand one) has come away from its housing slightly. When I pushed it back into place, ther bulb illuminated immediately.
As far as I could tell in the dark, the light assembly is held in place by a single screw at one end, and it is this end that was lifting away. Initially, I thought I might just wait until it was light, and tighten the screw, but then I realised the screw itself doesn't seem to be loose. I'm beginning to wonder if the screw is broken somewhere along the thread, and there's a stub end left inside somewhere.
Has anyone else experienced this, and if they did, was it an easy fix? I tried searching the forum for "number plate light", but all I got was lots of advice on how to fit LEDs, heheh!
