    Default Warning - 205 Headlights

    For those that don't already know, not all of the 205 headlights are held in by clips.

    Over time the silicon that holds the glass in place will dry/crack and the headlight glass will fall out, and in my case shatter on the bumper and thus scratched the bonnet and wing paint...

    Might be worth while checking the condition of the silicon in your headlights before you have it fall out.

    I've had this happen before. Luckily the glass came off when I was fiddling with the headlight so it didn't break.

    It's an old problem, the trapezoids used to do it. Go the other way like the Czechs and nothing moves them, you can't get a Pal lens off to repair.
