  12. Headlight bulb retaining clips

    Does anyone know if these are readily available for the 453? Iíve seen some for sale for the 451, which I know is a completely different lamp unit. But the picture of the clips looks very similar to those on the 453. Does anyone know if they are compatible? Thanks.

  15. Windscreen water drainage

    After washing the car and noticing that my front strut mounting points were wet, it made me observe the drainage route; it's seriously lacking in any planned drainage channels.
