Possibly just the Citroën logo text would do it?

Red text on a gloss black/grey banner should do it, will stay in keeping with the color scheme. ;)

I had something very similar happen with my BMW. The bulb didn't explode but the glass part broke off and was left inside the lamp housing.

Option 1: remove the lamp assembly (which involved more effort than I had time for) and shake the glass out through the bulb hole. Nah!

Option 2: Fit a thin-ish piece of plastic tubing I had lying around (it was about 8mm in diameter - possibly some siphon tubing or something?) to the nozzle of my vacuum cleaner, seal the join up with gaffer tape so that all the sucking was through the narrow tube and poke that through the bulb hole. The main big bit of glass got stuck to the end of the tube by the suction and I was able to just lift it out through the hole. The few small bits of glass shards could be sucked up through the tube.

Nice idea

When I hit on the idea and it worked, it was one of those moments when you get a nice, satisfying "I'm pleased with how that turned out" kind of feeling. Glad it still works and that others like the idea. :D
