What now? 500E Euro lights leak!!

Guys,

I've called Puma, Bekker, and Phil. The headlight lens (glass) is seated in an adhesive which has let go(not good since they were new 2 years ago). Nobody seems to know what to use to hold the glass to the housing frame.

I can get the lens w/surounding for $160. The lens by itself is less than $50, so I'm guessing someone here has battled this.

A Mb part # for this adhesive would be WONDERFUL!!

Michael

These are HELLA's and the glass is not held on by clips against a rubber gasket.

Somebody backed into one of mine and knocked it loose.

I sealed it back up with ordinary clear silicone caulk. Been good for over two years now.
