Offside/Left righthand side head light. Tight slot problem

Posted Apr 14th, 2018 at 18:24 by BrianH

Changing a H4 headlight bulb I broke the plastic reflecter positioner, the bottom one of course. The reflector shot upwards only supported by the back rubber. I did get some flashes from that before I realised the problem.

Brookhouse sent 6 replacements for 18 in two days. Just finished the installation.

Could'nt get the insterts to locate at all on the reflector. The slot that allows the the rotation is too narrow. Took to the small hacksaw to open up the slot. As the other two were old I did the three. with a screwdriver, mole grips, and lubrication to help rotation, we got there, after a struggle. Placed the reflecter over the ball locators, a sharp thump with the end of the screwdriver and it clicked into position.
