Front headlight gasket/bracket replacement?
Posted by westernny [Email] (more from westernny) on Mon, 30 Nov 2020 10:41:27
2001 9-5 sedan. Right front headlight assembly, plastic tab holding headight unit to car frame has broken off - see photo. The end that fit under the screw was broken into several small pieces, some of which had obviosuly fallen off. Gasket between headlight unit and vehicle is gone as well. AFAIK the gasket is not available as a separate part.
For the time being, I used some Gorilla tape to hold the whole thing in place. But that only holds for a few weeks. I don't know where I could get some material to use for a makeshift gasket.
I've seen a couple used headlight assemblies, but the gaskets look to be in poor shape, and I'm sure the plastic tabs are as brittle as mine.
Anyone have an idea as to how to repair this more permanently?
