    Well I can't give you the part number, but I can tell you that Vagparts can supply them and they are 13p each. I assume that you are talking about the small rubber cups that the metal pins on the lights push into.

    I managed to loose one of mine and so added 4 to my last order.

    by the time you added postage it would work out cheaper to get them from the dealer if your ever there.

    Just get some double sided tape stick it on end of a coat hanger & stick it down in wing, they're fairly lite so will stick & lift out, done myself on few bits before & worked each time, lazy gits, lol, call me anal but cant stand **** rolling about as I know bits I dropped would start making noises when driving, so had to improvise & get out, worked for me anyway

    I zoomed into etka on the exact 2 bung parts you are after, its 2 holes vertical in line with the indented part where the lense sits in on that edge, there's only one thing that goes there mate & I dont have etka on this pc, sure one of the guys with the part number I've shown can post image, but I'm sure thats correct as I double checked as the name seemed strange but it was right, **** I'll check again you disbelieving arse, lol, hold on............................

    Ok checked again its definitely on etka as that, the image even looks like the bung fella, just order it & if its not as should be which I'm positive its correct as I use etka everyday then cause its non electrical its returnable but tbh for the cost which is most likely peanuts its worth a go, but again I'm sure its correct there's no other part for those 2 holes

    mmmm, I'm interested too. My primary HD has just packed in a few days ago. Gutted as I've lost loads of my 3DS Max models and After Affects projects I had saved. Also lost my ETKA & WinElsa. The latter isnt an issue but my ETKA was 7 and I'm blowed if I'm downloading all the updates & installing them again!

    Is it packed up as in powerless or its got bad sectors, have you tried to repair if the latter, can you format it at all, there are many tools to recover lost data fella.

    Always have a backup, I live by them to extreme's given life long photos etc, but can get a nice smaller much cheaper DS207+ for about £200 with raid 1 plus drives of course which gives you basically mirrored image should drive go down, then just map all your data to save to drives on windows/mac etc, used Synology for years & others before that, cant do better than these, its a case of what value do you put on your data fella, mines priceless:

    Your right, bit of apathy I guess combined with the "will never happen to me".

    I have vista ult kicking about on a spare drive (sorry wont swap XP for Vista!) which I used to boot from. The drive powers ok but is full of corrupt sectors. If i try to access it from Vista I get BSD. Tried Chkdsk etc (I was brought up on DOS LOL)

    Is it me or is SATA (cables?) far more unreliable?

    fortunately i have a lot stored on my 2nd HD too. Its things like this that are now gone:

    Nah sata cables are good as long as you buy quality anyway, only had few go but its down to make, as for disk, what brand, goto brand website get there drive test tool as an iso & burn to disc, boot to cd & with **** disc in then get it to check the disc outside of windows, it will find bad sectors & mark them as unusable, then stick the drive onto a windows install as a spare drive then you can see if you can recover data, WD, Seagate etc all have there own tools for this fella so its possible to be fixed, but if its clicking as in track arm is trying to skip across to the platters then not good sign, I have actually found a whack with the hand on the disc when track arm is clicking makes it work, lol, honest.

    I have a drive tool to connect IDE, SATA drives to usb that allows me to fault find alot & also plug straight into a sata port without fixing in the case using external power & just sata cable to a spare port on the MB, works a treat

    Nothing wrong with command line fella, just **** GUI, lol, I've got every single version of windows on backup for sentimental reasons, nice to see how far its come huh
