Cracked headlight

17 posts in this topic

Got a BMW 1 series, really clean thing but the headlight has a small crack right at the bottom just next to the bumper, Its not too bad but because I know its there I can't stop looking at the bloody thing, not to keen on paying £70 -£100 for a headlight so just wondered if theres any special stickers available for headlights

You’d think this a £500 knacker. £70 recon for a really clean car doesn’t sound much to me - you want to see some of my bills on the shite I sell.

You could glue the sellotape on with a nice dollop of evostik 

Or splat a dollop in and tell the billy it’s tree sap :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:

Or mix some evostik with tippex and some chopped Berlin and tell him it’s hardened bird poop 

Berlin = gerkin 

You can tell I’m bored.....

Long time ago, there used to be a clear liquid you could run into glass cracks. Probably

not available now, but perhaps something else could work.

Bling it out and put some flypaper over the lights and do the same on the rear lights - jobdone.

Don't cut corners, not a car of that ilk. Just fit a new headlight, anything else will be a bodge, it will only mist up and then ruin the reflector. And afterall, headlight is a safety critical component.

When you MOT'd the car did it come up as an 'advise', out of curiosity.

Don’t waste your money, save the ££s. It’s a used vehicle. Don’t overprep.

Nope it really is tiny, right at the bottom of the headlight/bumper, I am not a tight bastard (I know all tight people say this ) but every time I get a "German Whip" they cost me a fortune and I say never again willI I just spend money willy nilly!!! if it had full history then yea maybe buts its high mileage with just 3 stamps.....fuck it ill just buy some of them eye lash head light things.....should put off all the boy racers!!!

OP, put a picture up, maybe superglue is enough if the crack is small?
