plastic headlight lenses

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for some replacement plastic headlight covers for my 02 E39.

 

Found some on fleabay price around £90.

 

Can anyone recommend a good set?

 

I did try searching the forum but couldn't find a thread tho im sure there must be one.

 

Thanks in advance guys.

As yours is a 2002; I'm not sure that these lenses can be used

 

IIRC it needs to be a full replacement unit, or the lenses can be refurbished by either wet & dry working in various grades, or a kit like the 3M headlight restoration kit

 

However, I'm sure someone will be along to agree/correct me :lol:

Cheers Dan, I have done the wet and dry and it worked really well on one side. However the other the other side really needs replacing.

If I'm right, you'll need to replace the whole unit. 

 

Search for 'best for fresh lights' on eBay, he swaps/sells refurbished headlights. 

 

Bought a full set off him for my previous E39 and they were immaculate! He bought my original (worn and damaged adjusters) off me as well!

There was someone who changed the lenses on their 02 5er. It involved lots of dremelling the old epoxy out etc.

 

Definitely doable though

I thought you needed to bake the early facelift lights, to soften the "gunk", and that then they could be split and it was only the 03s that were inseparable?
