BA XT Headlight Repair

The passenger side headlight is in need of a fix but would like know how to take apart the headlight to access inside the glass / plastic.

One of the chrome / silver ring thing in front of the black surrounds had fallen off due to a crack on the top of the ring and therefore broke off somehow... maybe caused by a thump over a pothole or speedhump.

I think it might be OK to superglue the chrome / silver ring back onto the black surrounds but wanted to make sure if it was possible to access the inside of the headlights and anything I need be aware of not to damage the light in the process.

I really don't want to fork out too much money for a replacement headlight.

Thanks.

I ended up calling the dealer, as I needed to confirm again that my car warranty was still valid. Thank goodness, i can get the headlight replaced under warranty. booked my car in for warranty service tomorrow morning so i'll see & tell how it goes tomorrow.

Re: BA XT Headlight Repair

I can fix it for you - but most time the chrome rim will have struck the inside of the lens and marking it - if u can put up with that - then give me a call - I can do it for around $88 plus 2 way postage to Melbourne of about $50 all up
