    hi guys,
    my sambos A150 is going good so far, but i've noticed that when I close the back boot it sounds like it's not shutting properly, looking closely at the handle (which holds the lights above the rear number plate) it seems the last hex screw on the right side is loose, I tightened it but now again after a few slams shut the screw has loosed again

    so.. is this normal to go wrong on these cars or has something that holds the screw inplace is just broken, if so how can i fix it ?

    Biltema was the one that I could not remember :( I just drove automatically to the one in Eskiltuna :D pleased you found it, just cover the thread of the screw and do it up, it can always be taken out again, thats the advantage of it.

    All the best Niall for the new year to you all :D
