Default Headlight Assemblies

I can not find any supplier in the UK for new replacement headlight assemblies except for the local Chrysler agent who will want a ridiculous price.

I see that in the US you can buy replacement assemblies for around $85 in the US, but of course they will dip to the wrong side.

Does anyone know if they can be converted to dip to the left if I could get a seller to ship here? All the ones I see on Ebay say they do not sell to UK, they also will not reply to emails.

Seems there is a large market for after market headlight assembly over here but no one is supplying.

Tony,

I take it you've tried the breakers yards in your area and around the country? You might also try the British eBay site that should have used PT parts.

hi Crewzin, I can find lits of 2nd hand assemblies but I was hoping to get new as all the ones in the breakers and eBay are starting to cloud.

Question Re: Headlight Assemblies

Here's one in Germany that ships to the UK for free....But since I'm a Yank I'm not sure if 153.65 for a pair is ridiculous or not: Chrysler PT Cruiser Replacement Headlight Assembly - 1-Pair | eBay

UK model PT Cruiser headlights have a 'drop' to the left,here in the USA the 'drop' is to the right.....This is based on aiming headlamps slightly down & away from oncoming traffic.

Unfortunately Germany also drive on the wrong side of the road. Thanks for trying though it is appreciated. Checked with Chrysler today 143 about $190 per assembly, so about $400 for both inc tax.

if you can find them a whole lot cheaper from the states or Germany, get them. all you want is clear lenses, so look for the stickie for the oven bake, and just swap the lenses. that's what I would do.
