Headlight adjustment clip....bugger!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have managed to either break or hopefully just pop one off the adjustment clips from the headlight (this is an exclusive so four spots) now it wobbles around do I have to remove the spot if so how ? Or is it like most cars just press it back into place?.

Now it's daylight got unit out so I could see and the clipIMG_20190811_152654.thumb.jpg.963d78c46aaa4593eb8506a82ae8154c.jpg has snapped..so a bit of improvisation and now fixed and still allows the adjuster to work good enough for the mot on Friday.

I scrapped the original fixings and designed and 3D printed my own system in ABS. this holds the lamp unit more central so they are not resting in water when the car gets wet. (see pic 2)

I'll have a set if you can still make them that elastic band won't last long.

Easier to make new ones using 5mm stainless bolts. Stainless springs with stainless wingnut nuts. Take an hour or so never rust or break. The how to do is on here somewhere by kev abbott
