Loose Number Plate Light

The nearside rear number plate light on my 156 is loose and keeps dropping down. Mostly it is irritating rather than a big problem.

The light drops down at the nearside (ie. away from the spring) and is easy to just push back. I prised the spring a little wider to make it a firmer fit and although that made it tighter to push back, once in place it was again loose and still drops down every couple of trips.

Any ideas?

Re: Loose Number Plate Light

clean the surfaces and use a few small dabs of clear silicone.

grrrr, mine kept flashing number plate failure, checked and one side intermittently cuts out so i thought must be loose connection, take it out, put it all back in, had to bend that clip down again as everyone else needs to... now they're both out!

i'll drive somewhere and call the aa out, lol
