Does anyone have some pop up headlight hinges?

Everything that doesn't belong in the previous categories probably belongs here. Interiour (how are the seats mounted? how to remove the CEM?) and exteriour (how to replace the popup-lights shock absorbers or a door) are discussed here!

Does anyone have some pop up headlight hinges?

It would cost 60 euros with shipping to the UK so I was wondering if anyone here had some they're willing to sell?

Good to see you again! Hows the GT?

Do you know anyone with a 3D printer? If so you can print your own

how's the GT
Well, it still drives

Airbag light, both window regulators need replacing, windscreen washer pump and some other stuff.
Should be mostly sorted soon

Have the regulators snapped? Again you can 3D print a repair kit
If the motors aren't spinning at all, check connections at multi plugs aren't corroded.

Washer pump - For the purpose of MOT, you could swap the front and rear pumps over (rear pump isn't MOT testable).
New pumps aren't expensive though

The right window is completely detached from the regulator and the left gets jammed, I think it's because of a loose cable

That happened to me once (my fault)

But I was able to fix it by threading the metal wire back round the sprocket, but my fingers did not forgive me for a long time!

Send me your address, a very kind 480 driver who's moving house and needed to get rid of stuff has given me a four of these headlight hinges to share amongst the needy!

Postage won't be Skandix-priced: 6 Euro.

I'll see if I can fix it myself, if not I'll get a new regulator. I haven't looked at the driver side yet, it wasn't a priority because I managed to close it by hand

You realise you’ll need a few more bits?
Upper column and light stalks are needed too
