  • New headlight??

    Does anyone know the best place to get new headlight lenses from? My passenger side one is full of dust and moisture after the cover came off the back

    Would rather replace both really as the other has chips and general wear from 37k miles of use so I don't want 1 shiny new one and 1 older 1 as it will look daft.

    Basically I have 1 or 2 bits like that to sort to make it immaculate again for selling. So if anybody knows anywere I can get new lights from or has some used ones in decent condition then please let me know

    EDIT: They are standard headlights not Xenons.

    I believe you will have to purchase a new light cluster as the lens is heated / bonded to the back. People have removed the lens, but this involves heating the unit up and when it comes putting it back together they had issues.

                  I've tried that, moisture has got in an stuck all the dust down in the corners. I'll have a good go at sorting them when there off the car and sell them on.
