Std 10mm nut and a ratchet spanner 8)

Kitch tip of the day:

Or.....go down the scrappy and find and AX or Saxo. As standard, the rear lamps on these cars are held on by the same wingnuts. Open the boot and have a nose at the light fixings. Two on each lamp on AX's, and one on each lamp on Saxo's/106's.
Probably applies to 106's too.

The same nut can sometimes be found on the indicators

DIY shops like Wickes and B&Q sell wingnuts - as probably do good accessory shops, bicycle shops, old fashioned ironmongers . . .

You'll want them to be plastic so you have half a hope of getting them back off again!

Kitch, your a ____ genious! And absolutley right, though i never made the link myself! I suppose than that 405 rear light clusters will have the same (where they dont just have plain nuts!)

you spend 8 hours in the library for the last 8 days and still be sane! Found myself flicking through 'Knots 96' today, riveting.

And, that is three spelling mistakes NOT grammar, and you missed one too, some teacher you would make. You just wanted to show off your new picture didn't you William, well go to the front of the class for being clever :D

Was my post invisible to you Tim? :P

Go to a scrappy. There will be loads of Saxo's and probably a fair few AX's there and you could come back with about 10 wingnuts in your pocket.

Lol. Ken rightly pointed out that sometimes BX's have them holding their indicators lamps on too, so if you see one there rip the headlamp off and have a look.
