    In Spain at present and a tiny little wall jumped out and damaged the rear light glass on my Hobby Siesta 650 (2010). Anybody know the best place to get one. Hope the photo will be on here as well. Colyboy

    It just so happens that I've been talking to Ambergate who are Hobby dealers in the UK re another spares prob. I had with my Hobby 650EC.
    I found them most helpful.
    They can be contacted via email at;
    spares@hobbycaravansuk.co.uk or;
    01773 853900

    Regards

    As is the case with many lights.
    Many have the lens bonded to the back plate/reflector and only come as a full unit.

    Try eBay....still be expensive but not £375.

    EDIT....looking at your pic that appears to be a bonded lens.
    The two screws hold the complete lamp to the van body.

    EDIT EDIT...opps, thats Andy's picture. :doh:

    Many thanks for replies. Yes it is my photo and yes the glass lens screws on with two long screws. Still hoping for help.
