    on a new headlamp...

    When I realised mine was missing, I just blocked it- the odd-looking bit in the middle of the lamp rear is a big vent anyways.

    That's the rubber the mice keep eating on mine. You can find similar looking pieces on car engine vacuum lines on a wreck. My brake bleeder kit has various ones also. Not overly important.

    Thanks a lot Reaver!

    A quick search at google for "vacuum line" returned me a lot of options that I can easily find to replace the missing part.:clap

    I'm just a little bit sad about not being able to find the original one. I'm trying to see this as an upgrade.:D

    Do NOT block this vent or you will end up with a burnt reflector like me.

    I'd just stuff a piece of brass wool in the hole. It will still vent, and I doubt the mice will like the taste.
