Light Cluster Repair?

From CEM to VEM, from LED to lightbulb and more. If you have an electrical problem, like a broken info-centre, search for answers in this category. This is also the place to be when you expect the problem to be of an electrical nature...

Light Cluster Repair?

Post by Martin Mc » Mon Nov 23, 2015 8:02 pm

Hello folks,

I know it is possible to get new front indicator / driving light clusters (220 Euro), but was wondering if anyone had come up with any clever ways of mending the inevitably cracked / broken driving light part? I have acquired a very nice 1994 S, in generally excellent condition, apart from the usual brittle / broken driving light scenario.

I was thinking about adapting a clear / diffusing lens from a scrapper, using a fine blade to cut to size and then epoxy resin to secure in place of the offending brittle bit.

At 220 Euro per side I think it is probably worthwhile ;)

Any (helpful!) suggestions gratefully received -

just get a second hand lens and then clean it up and stick it on.
