Headlight disassembly

Post by Major_Tom »

..hello you fine people. I have found one of my original headlight units, reflector corroded, but the glass has my reg etched into it, as does all the glass on the car, so it seems a shame not to do something with it.

Can the lens be removed and swapped onto a different bowl? What do I need to do so?

Hey Tom, many years ago i seperated the lens from the reflectors, even heating of the sealant and careful prying / cutting with a thin blade eventually got them apart. A polyurethane sealant/ adhesive should hold them together again ( i think i used a clear silicone sealant) once old sealant is removed.
