    Hi guys,

    Today I found out that my right rear light doesn't have nut, somehow lost... I had never checked before since bought the car...

    The left one does have its nut but the right one doesn't?!?

    Anyone know where I could possibly buy one? I've looked on eBay but no luck!

    Note: The nut I'm talking about has a little plastic tail at the end of it, it's not a screw though... I know it sounds like I'm taking about screw but it's not as I've checked the other one...

    Thanks :)

    It's a tube nut and is probably behind the trim panel where a previous owner dropped it and couldn't be arsed to retrieve it!:undwech:

    Yeah you're right, because I dropped a few nuts there myself, it's very disappointed how Audi managed to leave that much room, imagine someone like me with big/long fingers...

    Thanks anyway! :)

    Thanks! :)

    Anyone bought it off this website; Stoke Audi Genuine Audi Parts & Audi Accessories

    If know any other good website then please link back!

    I'm working during day and obviously can't pop in to one of Audi dealers, therefore must buy it online!

    Cheers

    They are sponsors of this forum and will give you a discount (not that 66p needs a discount)

    You will have to pay postage though which will be more than the nut !!!!!!

    Ring them and ask to speak to Dave - he will sort you out.

    D'oh! I've drop mine in there, how do I retrieve it? Do I have to remove the bumper? I was thinking of buying another one, but don't want it rattling in there

    NO don't buy another one, it's dead easy to take it out, just remove the inner plastic panel of the boot, just grab it pull it towards yourself as standing up, first pull the bottom bit and then upwards, just focus on the bottom bit, no need to be harsh or anything...

    then once that's been removed, you can easily look for it...
    Most of the time they end up right behind that panel...

    Hope you sort it...
