It's the thingy that adjusts the angle of the headlights...I guess they are easily broken and that with that drawing you can just take it to someone that will machine it from the cad drawing, something easily done in Italy or Argentina or China but i wouldn't even know where to start in the uk & i'm sure it will be more expensive to do than just buuying a new one! rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

The problem is it is not available as a seperate part as it involves splitting the glass from the housing. Both of mine had broken and I repaired with araldite and plastic welding, but others have compeltely shattered at the ball joint end so are unrepairable. I guess any good engineering place could make one up, but it wouldn't be cheap for a 1 or 2 off.

I want 8, 4 for the headlights and 4 extras that I have another headlights right replacement.

I have to find out, that I ITV (MOT) in a short time, and one of the headlights is not a reflector ajuster.

The idea is to bring together a group of people and do.

Good luck!

Thanks for the drawing of the slider piece. Do you know what the thread and pitch is on the adjuster screw, in order to have it machined into the slider? Thanks again.
