    Rear number plate light 'plastic' - cost?

    Anyone know how much these are new? Mine is decidedly yellow now and I keep wondering on changing it.

    Are you talking about the see through plastic that allows the light to pass through?

    If so, have you tried polishing it?

    I can't remember what i used now. I think it was actually Megs Nxt All Metal Polysh. Brought it up a treat. Nice and clear as i was thinking of replacing also. No need to now.

    Hmm, it looks well past that, but will give it a go. Worked on my old front lights now I think about it!

    When levering it out, but some folded up paper or card on the bumper so that the end of your screwdriver is into that slot piece of the lens and you're levering against the paper/card and not your paintwork
