DIY headlight fix

Postby legacydan » Fri Jan 23, 2015 7:28 am

So headlights turned up today. Drivers side on is fine, but seems like one of the top mounts snapped off in "transport" but it can easily be glued back on.

The passenger side was a gamble, but he only told me it was damaged and their water inside. and yep it was pretty bad. It only cost me 50 quid but as i can tell from looking at it, it needs HID ballast And rear assembly housing. Im not even sure you can buy the rear housing section on its own so looks like i need to source another one.

If anyone has a working passenger side headlight, let me know, as that maybe the cheapest option looking at the extent of damage to this lemon! I plan to open them up and black out and add some halo rings from Leo but i think this one may be beyond help

Heya - these headlights are exactly what I'm looking for!

Would you happen to know the model numbers?
I can only find pre-facelift headlights and not the ones with the little headlight washer popouts.
