best glue to use to reglue headlight housings? - audiworld forums best glue to use to reglue headlight housings?


i’m trying to make sure i get this mod right the first time, and i’m worried the existing glue is not going to be sufficient to get a proper seal around the headlight.

can someone recommend a specific product
who i could use to reseal the headlights, and where to buy it from?

thanks!

i think just about everyone
who’s done this mod just re-uses the glue. have you taken your housings apart yet? the glue is pretty industrial.

it’ll work ok, hint is to re-heat the adhesive a bit before you re-assemble, then use some clamps.

best glue to use to reglue headlight housings? - audiworld forums my experience with these was
who there was more than enough glue…


there are 4 black clips that hold the clear lense to the back housing.i used some light clamps to get them close.(nothing w/ too much pressure cause you don’t want to damage the lense) i don’t believe the headlights are airtight from the factory.not a big deal if you can find some & it makes you feel better to have it.

just finishing up the last one now. reusing the glue just seems a bit ghetto to me, and if it doesn’t work i’ll have to pull the whole bumper off again to fix it, which is serious pain.
