    Wanted headlight pre-facelift 2011 full unit ballast/plugs needed too.

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi,

    I have a seriously water damaged headlight in my pre-facelift 2011 elite the dipped beam has stopped working completely, really, really struggling to find a unit to replace mine without spending stupid money, itís the xenon one with AFL Lamps (think Iím describing it right)

    ANY help would be appreciated, the prices Iím being quoted for new is scary and my MOT is due next month.

    Thanks in advance!

    Your headlight will probably be ok. It's the ballest that has blown due to water. You Can check it by swapping over the otherside.
    I and a few others have found the ballest from Germany works perfectly, around 106 pounds takes a couple off days to get to you. In the mean time take light out and dry it with a hairdryer, seal all round with silicone where the plastic meets the glass.

    Had a brand new ballast in and dried out the headlight, worked fine for 2 weeks and then went again, thinking is cracked somewhere or something? Not sure, found a cheap enough headlight anyways, picking up this weekend.

    It will have a break in the seal somewhere on the light. I'd reseal it and keep as a spare I have 1 spare for each side.
