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

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.

I have it clicked in to the plastic tab, it was balls to get it in

Ordered a another one this is a genuine one. So fingers crossed

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
