Hi,

Can anyone recommend best place to order replacement Rubber seals that run across the top of the Headlamp units, both mine have perished and subsequently just left with the white plastic bit attached to the lamp units.

thanks

there is nowhere you can order seals they only come with the headlamps many have had the same issue and i can confirm from trying to find them myself they dont exist as replacement parts you will either need to buy new headlights or get a set from a breakers yard with the rubbers still attatched with the headlight removed they can be taken off yet replacement seals even ford will tell you you have to buy the headlamps

Thanks artscot79,

i think i will leave a while and keep an eye out for some s/h ones, i was considering buy some readily available 'door seal' type rubber, cutting to suit and glueing to the white plastic bit that remains.

you can remove the rubber parts from the second hand breakers lights that way you dont have to pay for them though i wouldnt tell the guy as many want you to take the whole light unit

Too late I know, but to prolong the life of all rubber seals/strips on your car, keep them clean (obviously) and use silicone spray to keep them nice and supple.
