Default C70 Toe eye cap

At least I think its called a toe eye cap. Its the piece of plastic in the rear bumber that covers the window revealing the toeing point.
I believe someone has pinched mine so need to find a replacement - I have seen one for approx 50 incl postage but that sounds absurd for a small piece of plastic (and I guess explains why someone pinched mine!).
Can anyone suggest where I could get one at a more reasonable price, or some other fix?
Thanks

If - by any chance - it's the same as the cover on the S40 rear bumper I have a spare you can have (black or metallic red, so some painting might be required!). No idea if it's the same though - can you give me details of the shape and dimensions of the space it fits and I can check for you perhaps?

Long shot I know but probably worth a look?

That's very kind. It's black and rectangular. Very approximately 45mm x 50 mm so it's quite small.
Regards, Graham

I'm happy to post it down to you if you want to try it - not much to lose and it might just fit?

Obviously a small contribution towards postage would be appreciated but I have no intention of charging you anything for the bit itself, if that helps!

Let me know

David

Hi David
Thanks very kind. As you say its worth a go. I have just measured the hole and it is 49mm by 45 mm. So I guess the correct cap would be very marginally smaller than that - but its feasible I could cut it down a bit if its bigger. My car is black.
I will happily pay your postage costs of course - just let me know the and I can do a paypal transfer.

Thanks, Graham
