    Just suffered a very minor shunt resulting in damage to the rear lens of my vehicle. There doesn't appear to be a part number which indicates the maufacturer. I am sure that these are available other than via Hymer. My vehicle is a 2010 Hymer Exsis,the lens is on the nearside. Any suggestions gratefully received.
    The 'perp' is very apologetic and has offered to pay for the replacement,I did warn them it could be dear.

    Try unscrewing the lense and noting down any serial numbers or model details. whilst its off, glue the damage to prevent the cluster from filling with water after you refit it

    Some Mongrel gave me a bump recently, and because we were away from the M/H took off:Angry: Even tho I gathered up the pieces there was a bit the size of a two pound coin missing from the indicator bit:Sad:
    I've made a tempory repair by going to the local Wreckers and getting a piece of orange lens from an old truck, cutting it to size,( Angle Grinder :thumb:) and super glueing it on, it's water tight and works ok .
    It will do till the new part arrives from overseas.

    Pete has the equivalent of a HNC in supergluing lenses.

    I'll just say Triumph Trophy 1200 crash bungees and leave it at that ...... :Doh:
