Headlight retainer clip

Hi all,

Changing my sidelight bulb yesterday and typically I dropped the silver retainer clip down into the engine bay. Spent about 45 minutes looking for it but have to accept its gone now. Any idea where to get another as local scrappys don't seem to have any to my surprise and you cant purchase them from Honda without paying for a full light unit?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks....

It's probably in the undertray.

Someone recently found they were difficult to source, a breakers is a good option.

Or hunt around on the undertray, try using one of those extending magnetic tipped tool/bolt retrievers.

I recall that someone even fabricated themselves a new clip from wire...

Good luck.

yeah tried finding it in the under tray but with no luck and have attempted to fashion one myself but its not very good, will do until i find something better. Unfortunately have contacted several breakers on ebay and a few scrap yards but all are claiming they dont have any

No promises but I will take a look in my spare parts bin (aka the garage) to see if I have a spare.

What about these clips/similar?

Kinda pricey but if you need one, then you need one.
