    Hello,
    I have a Meriva B. Is there someone out there who knows how to remove the headlight unit (nerside if its important). I decided to replace the yellow running lights with shiny white LED's. I removed the bulb which is a capless type and replaced the bulb when I put it back into the unit the bulb dropped out into the light unit. I have tried a flexible grabber the jaws do not grip and also blu tack - it just is not strong enough. I think the light unit will have to come out so that I can up end it to retrieve the bulb - can any one help or have other ideas for the retrieval?

    Many thanks in anticiaption.

    You could try a strong magnet. You may get it. The problem is there is very little metal on them.

    hi i wouldn't try to grab it with anything sticky as it'll mark the reflective surface - but as suggested try a magnetic pick up with a flexi rod - removing the headlamp is 30 minutes work and involves removing the front bumper
    regards
