XF headlight problems

Hello,

ive got an 1987 Spac XF and im having headlight problems, i know this is something to do with the headlight fluid levels...

So i was wondering how much headlight fluid i need to put in, and how do i check the fluid levels..

Also i was wondering where i could get some new muffler bearings because mine are pretty clapped out

Any help would be appreciated,
Thank you

I find that numerous 375ml cans generally are required. The green cans are the best I hear.

Well I cant help with the Headlight fluid, I have not had any experience with this as mine have not run out yet *touches wood*

however, one sure way to fix your muffler bearings is to get an O-pipe...these also increase power phenomenally.

Righto, well with the carby model you won't have the fluid height sensor.... I reckon you'd just fill it to the brim?!?

No...all of them had the fluid height sensor. It is a common misunderstanding about that.
The only difference is that the carby model fluid height sensor is located in the tail lights, not the head lights.

GB... things like this should not be done by the home mechanic... its always best you take it to your local mechanic and get a professional do this.

The halogen fluid, can actually damage paint work (like brake fluid). so if you fill it wrong, or spill some, you are screwed.
