Gentlemen !  recently I took the left tail light apart and had some pieces rechromed.  I must have lost a part for the upper half catch.  What I have is the long screw, spring and reflector.  Thats OK.  On the back of the reflector (push button) there is a little tit, and I have a spring left over (small spring with one end smaller than the other).   So with what I have, there seems to be no way for it to latch when closed.  Usually the light houseing will click when closed, so I suppose I have lost a part as there seems to be no way to secure the top part.   Would any good member have a diagram they could email me or fax me ?   Thanking you all much, Gerald MacPherson clc 18574
