WTB Headlight bucket

Fernando Macan

Recommended Posts

I have on here, but I don't know if it is for the right or left side.  Looking at the back of the ones installed on my car, I do not see a difference between them.  They both look like the extra one I have.


How can I tell if the one I have is for the driver's side?  I don't see a part number on it anywhere.

It has a few issues, such as missing one of the four mounting studs, a rusty spring that needs replacing, some rust at the bottom of the bucket, zip ties holding one of the threaded blocks in place and the other threaded plastic block has stripped threads.  Otherwise, it seems pretty straight.

do you have the ring to hold the light?


I thought I did, but only two of the screw tabs line up with the bucket, so it must be a left over VW beetle part.  Sorry.  (Otherwise, it is in very nice condition.  Darn it).


This is the alignment problem, with the other two holes lined up.  (edit-- it looks taller than the BMW part too, I believe).




Does $40 plus shipping seem out of line for a part that needs some work?


I can drop it in the mail today if that seems reasonable and you are able to pay with PayPal.



P.S. I also have two of the chrome adaptor rings to fill in around the bulbs behind the grilles.

You're welcome, Ferdinand.


I am very sorry to see what happened to your car.  I'd be happy to send you this bucket for free, if you'll cover the shipping cost.  Then all you'll need to find is the keeper ring. 


This one is for sale on eBay and has the ring included.



Nice used condition. Headlight untested.

Thank you for steering me towards RichenFamous' wanted post.  I'll reply to it now.

    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
