Well I thought it was time to treat the bus to something new(y) we all need spoiling now and again don't we.

The main beam units had a little bit of corrosion around the side light bulbs when we bought the van 6 years ago, never a problem with MOT or anything but thought time to spruce it up.

The units are used on quite a lot of "A class" van's Hymer Frankia etc, you see them listed under different vans and different prices on the internet but I think that they are all the same so I went for the cheapest from Opie Oils

:LOL: they are a Hella unit part no 1K0 008 191-007 and come with Halogen H7 headlight bulb and a sidelight bulb for the sum of £68.12 the pair inc P&P, better than them silly Hymer lights @DavidG58

Yes Id say so Paul. You can change the bulbs to High Efficiency variants which I did, I also considered changing the fogs to DRL's. But we tend not to do much night driving in the van and the existing headlights are adequate (just) during inclement weather.

Hi all, driving through Switzerland today I became aware one headlight was out :confused:
It's a 2003 a class Hymer.
I think I can reach the rear of the unit but only with a fumble !
I could just do with knowing what and how I'm going to be undoing as I can't see anything when I have my arm reaching through !
Any help appreciated
I think the same as in OP. It's the outermost one with dipped beam bulb in

Not quite but it is a help thanks. To replace the bulb does the end section just twist off do you know ?

I believe so. It’s a long time since I had to replace a bulb. Check which bulb it is though. My Hymer manual states H7 but after buying a stock, I realised they are H1. I think whoever translated the original German version must have seen a ‘continental 1’ with a long upstroke and presumed it was a 7.

I managed to remove the rear cover but this only seemed to reveal the wiring and gave no access to remove the bulb. I`m going to see if I can find a friendly garage workshop tomorrow in Lake Como town, wish me luck please, I don`t want to attract the attention of the rozzers over here ! and with so many tunnels needing lights on .......

I know this is an old post but I was wondering if you can remember how you did the repacement. How did you get the little black plastic grommets out of the frame, or did you have to remove the frame to get the old lamp out. I need to replace mine on my Rapido A class so any tips would be much appreciated.

You will need the frame out for sure I would say but it comes out of the Flair dead easy, after that I can't remember but don't think it was that difficult.
