    Not sure , but I think they are Hella make, go to an autoelectrcal place, they should be able to identify it for you. Failing that try Hymer, but likely to cost an arm & leg!
    Cheers, Dave:thumb:

    May be worth a try

    I know this says fog light, but it may be worth contacting them once you have a part number, they may be able to help.

    Yep! :Doh:

    If you drop the bumper and remove the wheel arch, you can get at the back of the lamps more easily, particularly if it is the outer (dipping) unit. I have never had to change one so I have no idea how complex the operation might be. I was just trying to find a way to make switching between L-R dipping easier - I failed as all the screws seemed to be hidden by the electrical levelling unit.

    In case you haven't done it, the bumper is held by vertically aligned self-tappers accessible from above the radiator (behind the 'Hymer' panel) and four bolts to brackets under the front skirt. Then it is screwed to the wheel arches. To remove the wheel arches, peel back the grey sealing strip between body and arch to reveal the screws. Also be aware there are some small self-tappers at the extremities of the arches.

    p.s. you may not need to remove the arches completely- just remove the screws that hold them to the bumper then the bumper should drop away between them.

    Cor what a palarver just to change a headlight. Bloody German van over built. :Doh:

    When I owned RVs they used to fall out regularly used to carry a spare 2 minute job to fit a new one and you could get em from the scrapyard for a fiver. :Rofl1:
