    A3 Facelift headlight backs and splitting lenses.

    So to cut a long story short im stuck with some facelift a3 headlights off a total w***er off here (thanks for the help sorting it jase), so im trying to make the best out off a bad situation.

    Ive mangaed to fix a rear broken lug (that holds the rear cover in) and a broken automatic headlight adjuster (thank god for 2 part resin ), anway i'me still left with 2 problems.

    1. I have no back covers for the headlights, anyone got a spare set for sale or no if the stealers sell these seperate?
    2. The headlights are covered in rust along the base of them (ill post pics in the morning along with a massive suspension update in my build thread ), how do you seperate the lenses from the units? Is it a oven joby at low temperature then reglue them back together?

    Discuss .

    The rear cover is listed as a 'cap':

    8l0 941 159 B - left
    8l0 941 159 C - right

    Doubt they'll be cheap though, and seem A3 specific so finding one in a breakers might be slow going, worth a go though.

    Yeah the pics show them going onto the one piece type headlight not the two piece pre-facelift. I used a A3 2002 model in ETKA to get the part #'s

    Just double checked, pre-facelift have no suffix and an A suffix. Facelift have B and C suffix's. So yes, they're are the right ones according to ETKA :-)

    hello mate, i have a pair of the caps you are looking for, the only thing is each cap has a 1inch hole in them for where i had my HID's going into them. It would be pretty easy to seal them again with a bit of glue and a plastic patch. apart from tht they are in good nick with good seals

    Cheers

    Seal the holes with a grommet:

    Cable Sealing Grommets : Grommets : Maplin

    Use the 25mm one code RG00A to seal the holes, use a little clear sealant to ensure water proofing.

    Did you get your lights fixed or are you going to end up with new ones? Just curious!

    Yeah show us when you're done! What does the oven do, soften the sealant or something?
