In a word...........YES!
The clips arrived today, now although i havent got them fitted yet or the facelift headlights, i did get the headlight motor and pushed it into these new clips and they are a perfect fit. Tight to push in but are very sturdy and wont break in my mind, its also abit of a pull to pull um back out but they wont break as they have 3 slits in them so are designed to be pushed and bent abit.
I'll get some photos up tommorow so you can all see what im trying to do but i would say these are "proper job"!
You know what guys, I actually have no idea what these clips do, as I don't have a problem with my headlights at all(yet), but for the small outlay, I thought it would be handy to have them at the ready when my headlights do eventually drop to the floor!
So what's the craic here, are these custom ones being made or not? of am I going to invest in the landy ones which seem cheap enough, and are confirmed to work??
Any ideas if this happens to both facelift and prefacelift headlights Paul?
With regard to them fitting pre facelift, the answer is NO the clip is a completely different design. However once I have done these ones and everyone is happy I would be happy to look into doing the same sort of thing for pre facelift people as I can lay my hands on a pre facelift clip from the local breakers.
I too dont mind paying a bit more if it helps get these clips nderway
just so i'm clear, are low pointing headlights a sign of this broken clip issue?
my reason being, my S3 has clearly had new springs fitted... how do I know? because both my auto headlight adjust sensors were snapped! (obv they didnt disconnect the linkage when removing the springs!)
ive since replaced them both but headlights seem low pointing... unless they need resetting in VAGCOM?
But I wouldnt be surprised if my headlamp clips were broken aswell!
Where are these clips located? are they just behind the headlights?
