    Default Front Interior map reading light

    On my Vectra Elegance model (2002) it keeps "rattling" when I drive, sometimes it does it, sometimes it dont, but it does me head in, I stuffed paper in the small gaps around the light fitting and it stops it for 2-4 days, then It starts rattling again, its so ****** annoying.

    Any Advice?

    Got it off!

    Managed to tighten the sckrews (the a small flathead), now got to tighten the two in the sunglasses holder, but there ever so slightely worn, so I cant make do with the flathead (but they arent severly worn, so the proper star sckrewdriver will work, just I aint got one)
