    So one of my sidelights decided to stop working yesterday and as I went to pull it out, it unclipped and fell into the headlight section.

    Is there a quick and easy way of getting this out??

    Cheers

    I had this recently when an LED sidelight bulb fell in mine.. I removed the main beam bulb and used a bit of blu-tac on the end of a long cable tie to poke through and grab the bulb...

    Use a little bit of tape around the top part of the blu-tac to help secure it to the cable tie and stop it falling into the light as well... helps if the blu-tac is warmed a bit as its 'tackier'

    I was going to try the tape on the end of a cable tie thing, but then had a panic and thought thats going to get stuck in there as well.

    I will give it a go when I get a chance :)

    If you make the blu-tac tear drop shaped and secure it to a good lenght of the cable tie rather than blob it on the end it should hold on fine

    Powerful vacume cleaner over the main beam bulb hole might work.

    Removing head light is easy enough to get it out. Then just add dice!
