W123 Euro light Part number / Advise

Hello,

I have w123 euro lights
hella right side vacuum adjust
bosch left side non vacuum adjust

Did these cars ever come with both sides vacuum? I have looked at a few different sets and they are the same as mine. Any comments?

Also, my right side headlight had some condensation inside the glass lens. I think from washing my engine compartment this weekend.

The seals on the back of the euro lights dont stay inside the grove where they go in. Any ideas on that?

Part numbers for a new gasket for what I have above?

Thanks,

about those 123 euro lights..

As far as i know they always come in pairs, either both sides level-adjustable by vacuum or as a pair of non-adjustables. I'll check the euro 123's around here to be sure though. Maybe you have a mis-matched set?

BTW, which euro lamps do you have, the early ones with the two round reflectors or the later ones with square reflectors?

Sorry, can't help you out with the gaskets.

I took off the cover last night to get the condensation out...This morning it was back in.

I need to get new gaskets I think.

All the pairs I have seen are missmatched exactly like what I have.

I have the one piece glass ones, you can see on my website which ones they are.
Thanks,

I am going to find some desicant tomorrow and see if I can dry it up. If that doesn't work, this weekend, Ill just take them out and take them apart and make sure everything is ok.

In the mean time, i will try to source some new back cover seals. If anyone has the part number for the seals both sides, that would be great.

Thanks,
