Front DRL indicator cluster

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!

Front DRL indicator cluster

Post by Monkeysox » Wed Sep 29, 2021 6:01 am

Hello everyone, someone has kindly taken out my right front indicator lens and some of the joining reflector, I have trawled the net, called dealerships and scrap yards and cant find one, the MOT is up this month and I'm getting somewhat desperate, can anyone steer me towards getting hold of one?
its the clear version 3472637

Out of interest, has anyone seen first hand the French reproductions?

Linky :arrow:

I believe they are whole units rather than just the lenses?

They were offering a choice between just the lenses and complete units. I haven't seen the front ones, but the back ones are very high quality. The fronts are made by the same man, who supplies prototypes to car manufacturers at the design stage of new models. The selected version is sent to companies such as Hella to make the moulds from for the production line, so quality is paramount.
