Headlight questions


Recommended Posts

The headlights in my manta b are not working (mechanic friend says bad ground) and I was going to buy a set or replacement lights. Found ones on eBay from Germany but the rear connections are different so obviously did not purchase. Anyone have a source for buying these local ?

Don’t buy anything from abroad because it’ll have incorrect beam pattern. 

Do a search on eBay for 5 and 3/4 headlights, but make sure you can see the mounting points in the pictures as some on there are different.

You can repair for sure. The whole alloy housing can be earthed anywhere that gives a good contact. 
You could drill a hole into the housing and use a ring terminal with a small nut and bolt as an example. (M4 would be about right), just remember that the oxidation needs to be cleaned off too.
