While changing batteries in one of my Mini-Maglites, it rolled into the biIge sump. I had to completely dismantle it in order to clean out the salty oily crud.
The bulb prongs push into tiny metal contacts (pics) that are normally hidden behind a small plastic disc at the bulb-end of the flashlight. In the process of cleaning, I lost these contacts
. They do not appear in the parts list or exploded diagrams on MagLite's website.
Does anyone know if these items are available as repair parts and, if so, from where? A part number would be great.
FYI: I originally contacted Maglite with this problem. They sent me the name of their "Caribbean distributor" - a car accessory shop in Barbados. Said shop had no idea what I was talking about.
