    Driving home and the indicator was doing its nut being intermittent, I know the problem as I come across a thread on here about it a while back. So I get home garage the car hear a hissing from the rear wheel and there's a nail in my fresh 265 that can just legally be repaired, whip the wheel off stick on the biscuit and on to the indicator. Removed my drivers headlamp to clean the connection to the indicator (that old chestnut) and the bottom right hand screw had seized into its metal bracket. I left it to soak and come back to loosen it off and snap the whole corner of the headlight tray snapped off. Not a happy chappy... The punctures not a problem, Does any one know the name or part number to the tray?

    I have a spare pair of headlight trays, I'll try and look them out later and post a picture to make sure we're talking about the same thing.

    Sorry to sound rude here but you got the part number on the tray already and as it's bust you have to take it off so once it's off you can look at the part number ????

    Very true lol I suppose it would help if I used a bit of common sense haha ill whip the light back out and have a looksy.
    I have managed to secure the light pretty well for the moment using a nut and bolt.

    James I think my fix will suffice for now but the man above me with two broken ones seems in need

    I think they're between £8-£12 from dealers. I bought them and had the same issue as you however I didn't break it, I found it broken (Probably some sneaky garage did it)
