Help with 159 headlights...cracked mount : (

Howdy all.
Went to get the headlights aligned today as I felt that the off-side headlight was low...it turned out that there was a crack in the top mounting bracket of the headlight. Would this crack be able to be fixed with a weld....forgive my metalurgical ignorance folks but don't fancy having to buy a new headlight.

Thanks
Pete.

Hi Pete,

That's bad luck... I just had a look at my headlights and it looks like the metal part may be able to be fixed... I'm not expert... but some coppertape and/or metal-cement may be used to glue and strap over the crack..

Loctite make some good adhesives like : Loctite Epoxy Metal / Concrete from Loctite Adhesives



New lights are expensive alright:

euro229 from Ireland Alfa Romeo 159 2005- Headlamp R.H. (Drivers Side), Halogen [This part is OE Equipment]


or
euro 170 + P&P from the UK on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=250241476030



Did you phone some of the breaker yards?

Cheers,
C Herb
