  2. Found a somewhat rare item. Left tail/ turn lens with red turn instead of amber. I think these were used on 68 02's, and early 69's.

  9. OK, this is a discussion for round lights only. The 'square' lights have a different style bulb contact for rear lights. If you've ever changed a bulb in a round tail light, you may have come across a broken center bulb contact, or more precisely the steel spring layer that pushes the (brass?) electrical contact layer against the bulb. This stell / brass multilayer contact does two things: 1) supplies electrical current to the center terminal (lump of solder) and pushes the bulb pins against the housing for the ground path; and 2) holds the bulb in place so that the filament is located in the focus of the reflector dish, a parabola. The focus is the 'sweet spot' that takes the light radiated from the filament and collimates it (directs the light outwards in a beam) through the lens. Usually a broken contact is discovered when one of two things happens. (A) you are bending the center contact inwards for more force, and get a little too pushy, breaking it off yourself (oops!), or (B) your tail (brake, turn, or reverse) light is out, and no matter how far you bend the contact into the socket, it bends back out again as soon as you install the bulb, because the steel layer was previously broken by someone else. (Scheize!) Either way, you will likely have a light not working due to this problem. This is a bad thing. Without adequate force against the bulb, the + and -- contacts are weak and unreliable, so the lamp will not light. 2002 lights are dim enough when they are working, having one out is worse. Recently while repairing and upgrading a pair of lights for someone on the forum, I designed a very reliable repair method that will solve this problem without having to replace the light with another. Cheaper, too, and plug-in simple. No cutting wires, soldering, or other tasks. Just a bit of heat shrink tube, spade connectors, and voila! Permanently reliable lighting from a broken tail light. The repair is designed to replace the existing current paths for both (+ and --) and connects directly to the existing wiring harness in the car for maximum results with minimum fuss. It also holds the lamp in the socket so the filament sits in the focus and works as intended. It also allows the cover to fit as usual over the back of the light, and allows the lights to work normally OR can be used to double the tail light size and triple its output by incorporating the tail light upgrade I also designed. Works either way. Anyone out there with a broken tail light that needs this repair? I have two right now that need fixing, I'll be glad to help you or send a bit of advice... or if you have one in such a condition and want to have a good working spare, send it to me and we'll get it back in working order.

  10. I'm hunting for a right rear (passenger side) tail light reflector. I need it quickly and in reasonable or better shape. Prefer PayPal transaction.
  11. That plastic cover which mounts to the back of the tail light inside the trunk. Mines cracked. Anyone have on decently priced? thanks!
  12. Anyone have the square tail lights for both sides? I am looking for the whole lights set but only the lenses would work too. Thank you
  13. So after taking so much from this forum I thought I would give something back. I just installed some LED bulbs from Super Bright Led's after reading so much about led bulbs in general. I was looking for before and after and couldn't find any. So I will post some before and after below. Now all i need to do is find something to replace the tail light lens seal. But I think someone has come up with some. Here is the "before" rear tail light, same ambient light Here is the after picture Before respray After Respray Here is a pic of the anti strobe resistor soldered in place. I know it heats up, but considering it is just the flasher, it should be fine in the tail light assembly as it will be on only intermittently. I hope you find it helpful. I feel like I will be seen better. I also have a high mount tail light, but I am on the fence about it. Now it is time to do the front turn signals and convert the headlights to H4's with LED's in them. Regards M
  14. Hi all, I recently found out my drivers tail light does not work (74 2002 non tii). I tried sourcing the problem, but I cant seem to find where the issue is. So far I have: - tried replacing the bulb - checking the fuses (not sure which one is related to drivers side, but all 12 are in great shape to my knowledge) - checking the connection at the bulb to housing - checking the connection from the connector to the housing (male to female plugs) - have NOT checked the full wires from bulb to front (I hope I dont have to do this) The confusing thing is the passenger side works and all the other bulbs within the drivers side housing work perfectly (including the brake light). That detail makes me think it could not be ground related, but something else. Any help/ ideas? I am not an electrician by any means, so input is greatly appreciated.
  15. hi, i own a bmw e9 coupe, and i am part of the e9coupe forum community, i have some contacts that allow me to find parts in europe, in most cases NOS, this time a friend called me about a find of several parts, mostly e9 and e3, but together with those he found this tail light, part is NOS, pristine, part is not clean, shown just as it was found, perfect chrome, neat colour lenses it seems to be a Left Hand side, but i am not an expert in this model i wonder if there is any interest in this part, will be happy to sell it to a good home, paypal accepted, and tracked shipping available regards and thanks
