Hooks Are Not Just for Pirates....

Post by Hadleys Taxi » Wed Jun 17, 2020 6:24 pm

Evening All,

This afternoon I somehow managed to drop an indicator bulb into the indicator housing. I could have sworn I heard it click into place, but then again,,,

Anyway, after putting a fair amount of dosh into the local Swear Box I remembered I had a magnetic claw with LED light (£8 Halfords!), after a few minutes of fishing about I managed to hook it and even more miraculously, get it out through the hole in the back of the headlight housing.

This handy little gadget now takes pride of place next to my tyre pressure guage in my travel toolbox.

It's not very easy to turn the vehicle upside-down and shake it! I'll have to investigate getting one of those claw things. I've got a magnetic retriever somewhere but that wouldn't be much use for a bulb. The other fishing option would be a bit of double-sided tape on the end of a stick.
