My headlight has the plastic lever that moves a cam that releases the headlight assembly
The lever is broken off the clamping band with the two cam slots that tighten the headlight assy into place.

I hit a post a couple years ago. . .replaced the front right fender, but glued the headlight lens back on and kind of jammed it into the bucket.

Ok, bulbs out now and need new headlight. I also need the tightening, locking mechanism that hold it in place.

I see an OEM headlight at autohausaz for $151 plus shipping. The clamping band may have to come from a junk yard. Especially if I don't have a part number.

Any advice GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks a lot. I guess a trip to the dealer is set for tomorrow. I'll drive it out there in case the term 'headlight catch' doesn't get results. Somebody can walk out a look at it.

I just opened the link to ECS. I found everything I'll need.

I'm one of the guys who just couldn't afford to drive without forums to help me do some of the work myself.

gratefully, Ward
