    Ok guys I purchased a beautiful 950se and it came with an aftermarket hid headlight setup. Issue is it has never had a high beam so I went finally to replace it and they busted the white retainer clip. And glued it all back together. Very hack. Do you guys know where I can get one of these? It’s sold it as part of the light housing that is also no longer available.
    Thanks for the help Inmates

    Is it a seperate part of the housing (ie screwed on but a seperate small plastic clip)?

    If so, take it off and get one 3D printed cheap as chips.

    Not sure of it's the same as my 990 or I'd check that for you.

    The clip is all busted up. But it looks the same as the 990 it’s the white plastic ring that screws with tabs to hold in the build. If you have one I can barrow to have it scanned.

    Can you confirm your one is like this?

    It looks like the clip part is moulded to the entire reflector assy.

    We'd have to figure a way of getting something that fits on top JPEG_20200211_174250_4821576227965734161.jpg

    That's not an SE headlight. There is no spring clip holding the bulb in on an SE. It's a white plastic disc.

    I can loan this one out to someone that will can replicate. All I ask is that I get it back along with a spare. Will have to be hi temp plastic... it gets pretty hot from the bulb.

    Mine is a 990. Figured they might be similar or even the same but mine looks worse so I hope it never snaps.

    If you could take measurements, lots of measurements, I may be able to create a replacement from that.

    I'm UK based but can print it and see how it comes out. Then I can share the file and people can get it printed closer to home. Printed in abs would be fine with the heat
