Headlight clip for a brera

Hello everyone

I tried to change a front headlight bulb on my brera yesterday , it was a very fiddly job. I ended on dropping the metal clip/fastener that holds the bulb in place into the engine bay and cant get to it.

I have tried to buy another one but no one I have found can supply one.
Does anyone know where I might be able purchase one as i have had to bodge it in place with a paperclip !

any help would greatly appreciated

I used a stick with some blutak on the end with a re-shaped paperclip to act as a hook worked well for me, ofc, you do need to see it to be able to fish it out

suppose this is a bit late for you markie, but it's a good idea to tie a length of cotton to the clip before you remove it so that you can get it back if you drop it in the engine bay. when you're finished simply cut the thread off

Have you tried fishing around for it with one of those magnetic telescopic tools? Very useful thing to keep in the tool box.
