    Has anyone got some plastic engine screws lying about? The ones that hold down the engine cover? Phoned my local stealers up and wanted close to £4 just for 2 screws, rip off (im after 3). Also has anyone got the lower plastic cover that sits on the passenger side over the battery, mines smashed up for some unknown reason.

    Cheers

    Are people running about in a car that new would have cost between £25,000 and £30,000, really complaining about the cost of a £1.70 screw?

    Jesus wept...
    WTF is the world coming to?

    I was missing one on my battery box when I bought the car. When I had the front passenger wheel off to look at taking the wheel lining out to try and get better access for the ABS controller found a recess at the rear of the wheel arch (right hand side as you look at it). There was a load of **** in there and my missing screw! Something similar could of happened to yours, though have no idea how a screw could get in there from the engine bay!!!
    Just cost you bout 15mins of time but it's free if your lucky!
