Headlamp lug repair kit

Post by janeway » Mon Oct 08, 2018 9:56 am

Cactus 2016 HDIBLUE 100

Struggling to fins this kit - it's been mentioned on this site as 'Kit 7' - 2 parts - but (unsurprisingly) my citroen garage deny all knowledge of it and want to fit a whole unit at ££££.

The repair kit is meant to cost around £40.

Has anyone ever bought one or knows where I can get one?

Thank you.

Unable to give you any specific information but I can see that there are numerous web references on the web for repairing or replacing "headlamp tab bracket" or "headlamp bracket" for many different cars, which seems to be the same issue.
See for example this YouTube item showing the repair done for a Land Rover Freelander.




There are many other YouTube items showing similar repairs for other vehicles, but unfortunately cannot see anything specifically for the Cactus ...

Yeah, thank you.

The kit is mentioned in another thread on here - but it has to be that specific one because of the position of the lugs.

Also, an awful lot of the front has to come off to remove/replace the entire unit, but as everyone knows, almost impossible to find cactus workshop manuals.

I just hate my local citroen garage so much - ripped me off a few times...

Thanks for help.
