You're quite right but I've got nothing suitable at hand and don't want to do a bad shed work hence went to our good old Rimmers and for a tenner (VAT & expensive shipping to France included) got it right with the intended stuff CZK3264 & DA608054L:






Where I'm living less expensive than Halfords...

BTW I've found the holes behind the trim as told by @Trikey but no hole or thin line on the trim that looks absolutely untouched since its fitting on the 1st of July 1999!

Many thanks for the photos and explanation Steve, now I have been able to successfully mount the triangle in my boot having located it in the correct place - and it is now staying in place without falling off when I shut the boot lid!

Hope I can make it up there one Sunday Steve, for the last 12 months I've had to work weekends, now landed a permanent job when I get Sundays and Mondays off.
