what part do I need for my headlight?
« on: November 04, 2020, 04:38:28 pm »
tried to get it repaired today with the harness some nice bloke sent me,  and they said it wasn't the right harness, one i got had 9 picks, r32 headlight has 11/12. all wires in the headlight are toast and i'm not completely sure what I need, new headlight loom? or do i need to replace something else where the wires go into the headlight?



thank you

insulation is damned on all of the wires, which is making it short circuit and pop the fuse, guy i took it to said i could get them to repair the insulation but no guarantee it'll work and that the wires are quite brittle etc

it's the wires going from the loom to the lightbulb(s)?

i dont know how to explain it sorry lol

I have one car here with a damaged R32 [xenon] headlight that could have a good internal harness in it, but I would have to check
