I find that little plastic clip really useful for holding a condom somewhere prominent while trawling my local streets for action with `ladies of the night`.

"It was one of the first bits I salvaged from my old 850 to replace the broken one in my V70l" - You must have done it Dave. Do I have to remove the door rubber to enable the plastic to release?
I can't honestly recall the details but I don't remember too much difficulty, having the 850 as a donor meant I could just attack it without worrying about damaging things like trim, but since I went on to fit the clip in the V70 it can't have been that bad.

Never thought of that use for it, just need to be careful when parking in the 'Pay and Display' next day!

Hello

When Autoglass replaced my windscreen, they fitted a little plastic ticket thingie with it. They even replaced the sun-bleached ticket that was held in place behind the old screen!
