    Had a missing lens on my left no.plate light. 320 compact...Luckily electrics still ok. Gotnew lens from stealer for a few quid. Not immediately obvious how they fit in. Essentially you need to prise out the metal tab a bit. Remove the good one and you'll see what I mean.. Good luck on internals - sounds like a bit of a '

    I am reluctant to chance used online breakers part without seeing it as i have been quoted £25-£30 +vat and delivery.Dealer unpainted £67 inc vat then £45+vat to paint seems a very expensive fix.The metal bulb holder has rotted big time and is unable to hold bulb now wafer thin will need to replace shortly for mot.Dont feel confident enough in my spraying abilty to paint it myself then have it looking like its been painted by a childrens play group,will get it done professionally.If only holder had been detachable would have been loads cheaper so warning to others if lens is missing change it pronto or face big bill.Many thanks to all who replied.
