Need a new trunk/boot light

Does anyone know if there is a way to use a different light unit in the trunk/boot as mine has fallen to pieces and even second hand from a breakers yard they want 43. Its a very poor cheap plastic unit and not worth what people are charging for them.
So if anyone knows of a fix so i can get light in my trunk please let me know.

Dave

Check out ebay there's allways a few parting out ! If you can post the size , length and width , I could check if it's the same as the one on the r171 or the glove box or another of my cars , to broaden your search !
For example you could get in touch with these guys to get the dimensions , you never know it might fit !

Surly they will mail it to you. You do have UPS over there don't you. Don't know what shipping cost but it can be that much on something that small. I get items from Japan and other areas and shipping it not that mush it just takes about two weeks to get it.

Their web page doesn't seem to offer shipping outside of the US !
Perhaps if you contact them by email they can sort it out !

The total size of the boot one from the r171 is also that size , but dome shaped ! The identation on the bottom of the door card leads me to believe they would also be of similar size , try contacting the seller of the previous link to see if they can confirm .
Ideally if the seller from the US won't post , some kind soul from the states could organise the buy and post it on to you ???
