Is There A Part For This?

3 posts in this topic

I recently noticed that my headlight rear bracket has snapped. As a result the whole headlight unit is loose and bounces up and down on the motorway.

It is snapped in the middle as you can see also where it connects to the black cover is is broken.

Can I buy the rear black casing of the headlight? If so, What would it be called?

Or does anyone know how I could fix it, i'm not going to buy a whole new headlight just for that bit.

That top bracket is integral to the light unit.

I doubt very much that you would find a rear case alone anywhere as they are sealed units from the factory.

Opening the lamp up involves heat and patience as the lens is glued to the case and usually once opened will not reseal properly resulting in bad misting.

Pity it wasn't a bottom bracket as they are removable.

As a fix I could suggest either strong superglue and plenty of tape or possibly a strip of metal cut to shape and then drilled and riveted to the remains of the bracket.
