  • Ford Model: Escort Van 1991

Posted 06 April 2010 - 10:32 PM

Hi guys,

I'm a newby here, so hope i am posting in the right area/Forum.

I have acquired an old 1991 Escort van here in France, its right hand drive & still on its old english plates, but i want to get it registered over here.

my question is, As i will need to change the headlights for driving on the right hand side, do i need to change the whole headlight unit, or can i just change the glass lens, as it looks like it will come off very easily?

if the answer is just the lens, does anyone know where i can get them at a sensible price?

Many thanks in advance for all responses.

Cheers

To be honest bud, it will be a lot easier to change the whole units to LHD ones.

Hy Vinny,

Yes there are scrappers over here, but they are a nation of recyclers, even to the point of still using lorries & vans from WW2.

As a result their 2nd hand value is frequently higher than the UK original equipment suppliers, hence my question.

But thanks for the reply.
