164 drivers side headlight unit (right hand drive)

Post by 164fan » Fri Sep 26, 2014 9:06 am

Hi All
I have a 1997 164 3.0 24V Super, and on my way to work this morning hit a pheasant that smashed my headlight (the pheasant came off worse though!). Has anyone got a spare available? Urgently needed as I use my car every day. My number is 07415 105578 an email ianwilliamsm7@gmail.com

Many thanks

Ian

You may search for just the glass only. Saves money and you don't have to worry about LH or RH driven light units...

That's a nice idea, but the pheasant has damaged the inside reflectors etc... so a whole new unit is needed. I was doing 60mph when I hit the pheasant, and it was coming towards me so a pheasant with a combined impact speed in excess of 60mph will do some damage. It broke the narrow radiator grill as well but I have managed to cable-tie that securely.

Not sure if this is the one for the Super of first series. But EPER part is mentioned (60511970)

This looks like a pre facelift item with a separate lens for indicator and headlight.
I have informed 164fan that I have two used units but have had no reply.

Hi
Thank you to those who responded - I managed to source a replacement on Friday which arrived today, and is now fitted. I did speak to Kinghams but theirs is for a pre-face lift model. I was actually offered a total of 5 units which just demonstrates there are parts out there, how useful the forums are, and what a great bunch of people 164 owners are.
Thanks again.
Ian

Great that you got it solved :)

For reference you can look at the photo in Hilko's signature, showing the facelifted headlights and the photo in alfa east's reply with the first series headlights to see the difference.
