    Ok so was just changing a number plate lamp bulb went to pop the lamp back into the bumper and its fallen into the hole and I assume down into the bumper :(

    Anyone had experience of this and how did you get it back?

    I'm hoping it's not a bumper off job :(

    It's the BTCC bumper if it make a difference

    Thanks in advance

    I think I remember a thread where someone had found a previous owner with the same issue had hacked on a new lamp rather than get the bumper off to retrieve the one that fell in.

    Long story short, Im pretty sure you need the bumper off.

    Unless you have unusually small hands and skinny arms I think bumper needs to come off lol.
