SOLD W116 Bosch Euro headlights pair
I finally tackled opening my first pair of Euro Lights.
Opening requires just to rotate the clips sideways 2 small 6" pliers, a skinny and a 45 degree needle nose and a heavy duty plastic panel tool to carefully separate the lenses.
The lights are better than I thought. I guess over the years a good amount of dust gets on the reflectors and the inside of the lenses. Compressed air, a microfiber cloth (the reflectors can actually be wiped, but lightly and very carefully).
I cleaned the lenses inside and out, and the result looks pretty good.
None of the lights have broken tabs, chips, cracks etc.
In the pics there are no rubber seals behind the lenses, both seals are in one piece with no rips. breaks, or damage, and have been re installed.
R (passenger side) light: Lenses are excellent and clear with no chips or cracks to be seen, the reflectors are better then good, with no spots and are shiny. Housing very good.
L (driver side): Lenses are excellent and clear with no chips or cracks to be seen, reflectors have some fading on the roof and floor part of the reflector (pics), the main reflector bowl is shiny.
Lights come with bulbs and plugs.
Asking $240 plus shipping costs.
