    The high-spec interior lights seem quite hard to come by these days - there used to be loads on Ebay but have all disappeared, I tried to find one about a year ago. The same light with the delay module was also fitted to Mk2 Cavs, Carlton Mk1, Senator and Monza, all 1985-on, which might help you.

    Which part is falling down? If it's the whole module falling out of the headlining frame rather than just the bulb cover, I've had success in the past on several occasions using the furry side of sticky-back Velcro to pack out the light unit. The soft fur holds the unit in place absolutely fine against the frame and can't be seen, in fact the one in my Mk3 is "repaired" in this way and hasn't fallen out in over 100,000 miles

      Thanks, it's been packed out with masking tape in the past, I'll have to do something better if one doesn't turn up, trim parts are very scarce for this car, I noticed there's a guy breaking a 5 door GL on Ebay, I did message him but no luck, little bits like this can make a car feel somewhat tatty,

        Trim parts are pretty scarce for all the pre-face-lift cars now sadly...mind you, those little screw covers and things like that are extremely hard to find even for the late cars these days.

        I believe the screw cover you're after is part number 90309029, but I can't seem to find any available at present.

          Yeah, it's hard to find stuff like that, I think people breaking them can't be bothered sending stuff out like that either,
