I was changing the R.F.side indicator on my 400 as it had some water in it, as I took it off, the part that holds the bulb came off and fell down into the gap between the wing and the frame, I have tried to recover it but no luck,so now there is a light bulb and holder stuck down there. Has anyone got any ideas how I can get it out. Please.

You need something like these surgical clamps on eBay. 

Not these particular ones as they are too expensive, but I got a pair of these clamps on a Fleetwood Market tool stall for £3.99 each and they've come in really handy for all sorts of jobs - none of them surgical I hasten to add  😁

Best of luck, I had similar problems when fiddling with front lights, but was able to reach with hand and pliers to get things back on track.

Oh dear !

i would suggest you need to pinpoint exactly where the part is before attempting to retrieve it. I would buy one of the flexible WiFi cameras from eBay. - they have a built in light and is only £12.99. Use it to locate where the part is and then decide which tool you need to retrieve it.

good luck
