    im looking for a new headlight for my 2010 seat leon drivers side uk, its rattles

    so im on the look out for a new one. but the problem is the terms websites use
    left hand traffic righthand. they have just got me confused
    and when they talk about left or right. are they in the car or looking at the car

    what am i looking for

    i see ones on sites and i look down the specs and it get over my head


    any help would be great

    It's usually as you're sat in the car so left hand is nearside and right hand is offside

    Makes it even harder when they just show a generic image but the image is the wrong side to what's listed :D

    if headlight is loose maybe all it needs are a few brackets made up to secure your headlight?

    I have tried two and she still rattles
    At low speed

    The head light is connect to the metal frame

    Maybe it's just third party light

    Seen the main beam section
    I have a feeling see the black plastic just under it, I think it is hitting of something.


    First light was a cheaply
    Second was a valeo it was worse than the first, I thought it was meant to be a good make
    Haven't got a third, as I have spent near 200 so far

    valeo is good as we use them,was the unit replaced as one unit or was the motor removed from other unit and manual adjuster removed to be replaced with the motorised one.
    if not clicked into place your headlight will wobble up and down.

    when your removing other unit have a look before opening up new unit to see if you can see what happened

    Got the new official head light and the rattle is still there and it's the same rattle

    So headlight isn't the problem

    Any one want a cheap 2010 drivers side heat light
