2002 Headlight Adjustment Knobs


Recommended Posts

I want to replace the 4 headlight adjustment knobs (2 for each headlight). The plastic thumbwheels have vanished over the years. I called the dealer but they're no longer available. Anyone have a source for them?

Here is what I have. One knob looks to be partially melted or deformed from pliers.

I must first check the buckets from my 69 to ensure they are good before letting these go. Will do today and report back here. Can bring to Vintage in May if someone needs them.

Is there a part number for the rectangular nylon nut thing?

It probably wouldn't make a difference: they've not been available for decades. You make your own or buy old headlight buckets (I suppose you can also buy new headlight buckets). There are other threads about making your own headlight adjuster nuts.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
