Ascona Headlight Dismantling.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm looking to remove the indicator lenses from my Ascona headlights and replacing them with clear or tinted ones, giving them a good clean in the process.

Is there any specific way to split the headlight unit up? Iv not attempted it yet but just thought I'd ask just incase I break anything. Thanks guys.

its real easy,

remove the headlights first, there are 4 metal clips around where the glass and plastic join, gently remove them with a screw driver or such and the glass will come away easy. The rest is plain to see from there on.

Cheers

Raymond.

The orange lenses drop into the headlamp body. You can get clear or smoked ones and use coloured bulbs if you are trying to change the look. Rapierdaves Ascona has a set of smoked ones in it

Cheers James. Iv seen the various lenses on german ebay for €55 or there abouts. Have you seen them any cheaper elsewhere? Thanks.

Ask paulmanta where he sourced his, don't know if they were any less than that

Germany ! on a trip out there a few years before I even owned an Ascona ! I bought them at an autojumble because I thought "oh, you don't see those often"
