Low Light Headlamp Parts

Postby Nourish » Wed Jul 21, 2021 1:48 pm

Hi. I asked this question in a post in Electrical but no replies so thought I'd try here.

Can any one tell me what the rubber fittings should look like that fit into the rim - what have you used?

Also -

This is the inboard pivot that bolts to the grill panel bracket.
Is there something missing here? I think there should be something here to locate it in the slotted bracket along with the bolt?

Rubber on mine was just a bit of thin wall rubber tube over the bent bit of metal. Enough to be a slack fit in the hole in the chrome ring.

Much as I'm loathed to say it, try the facebook page, this messageboard used to be brilliant...........
Then it gradually got less and less reliable (crashing etc.)....
So people seem to have stopped using it, some have switched to facebook. Search for Mike Dean / MMOC.
Hopefully one day it will regain it's reliability but then it will need to get the membership back on board with it.
Having never owned a Lowlight myself I am unable to help you.
Good luck and best wishes,
Mike.
