Hi,

The driver's side front nose grill on my Elise has worked it's way undone. :mad:

From what I can tell, there is a single screw holding the thing on. The screw wasn't long enough to catch a thread in the plastic tight enough...

Question: Aside from getting a longer screw to screw the thing in, how the hell do I get to the screw to begin with? :huh:

My first thought was to go in through the blinker hole with a stubby screwdriver and torque it down. I don't know if my hands will fit though. :rolleyes:

I suppose I could take the front wheel off and try to get to it from the headlight access panel as well... Has anyone here done this before and how did you do it? :confused:

Thanks so much for your help in advance. :)

PS ATTN: Mods - I tried posting this in the "body" section but was unable to post anything to that section.

Well, this turned out to be my way in... although the screw that was in there just wasn't long enough.

Instead of using a longer screw and struggling to torque it down with my fat hands, I just used a wall hook that was long and thick enough. Worked well. Going to have to do the other side too.
