    One of my rear number plate lights fell out, complete with holder. The screw hole has worn and become too big. Does anywhere sell these as searching on the part number all I get are LED upgrades?

    Is the holder and bulb classed as a single part?

    Part no. is 8E0.807.430B

    Thanks.

    Thanks for that. It's good to have the price to compare. The LED ones seem to be £29.99 delivered for 2 from the bay of evil.

    So to follow up on my own post to help others.

    8E0.807.430B - which is the holder was £8.41 ex VAT
    Replacement bulb - £1.40 ex VAT
    Total: £11.77 inc VAT.

    Also for information. 8E0.807.430B is the right hand side holder, 8E0.807.430A is is the left hand side one.

    And as a follow up to my follow up...

    When I fitted the new bulb holder I made a right mess of the screwhead. As someone in another thread described, they seem to be made of cheese. To avoid future problems, I removed the mashed screw (totally destroying it in the process) I then used one of these instead: M3 x 12mm 3 x 12 Black Inner Hex Cap Socket Screw x 10 | eBay they are a bit longer than the originals. Reckon M3 x 10mm would do but I had no trouble fitting them. I also used the hex bit fitted to a small socket set rachet to put the new screw in. Much, much easier than faffing with a Jeweller's screwdriver.

    So, if you are thinking of changing your numberplate bulbs, you might want to get some new, better screws while you are at it.

    And job for the weekend. 9 months after the right holder fell out, the left one has now done the same, exactly the same. Screw hole worn and become too big and lense fell out. So this time I'll be needing 8E0.807.430A.

    Thanks but I'm not after LED bulbs. It's simply the bulb holders that have got old and fallen out. I did one already, wish I'd done them both at the same time. Ho hum.

    So did this yesterday. I do wish people wouldn't bodge things. Took the old screw out to find it wasn't the M3 type thread it should be but instead was a small self tapper. Reluctantly I had to reuse the old screw to put the new holder on. *Sigh*.
