    Default Facelift model headlight advice needed.

    I have recently been having problems with the off side indicator on my facelift Vectra where the computer has reported bulb failure. I initially removed the headlight, then the bulb only to find the bulb was ok but that the terminal inside the actual headlight looked slightly damaged. I cleaned it all up, checked it was working and put it back together. It worked fine for several weeks until it started doing the same. This time I replace the bulb, cleaned everything again and hey presto, all ok for several weeks. It has started doing it again today and if I press on the bulb holder it starts working again.
    The only conclusion I have come to is that I need a new light unit, which is a chrome one.
    Unless I pay silly money for a brand new unit I can only find black ones and damaged ones.
    Can anyone tell me if I can dismantle these units to swap bits over and make one good one or are they totally sealed.
    Any advice gratefully recieved.
    Thanks in advance.

    Or just fit a nice set of black ones, they look better...

    Matt, I have tried that once but I will try it again. It's a pain in the ass taking the headlight out though!

    Alan, I take it that meabs they can't be dismantled!

    Thanks for the replies anyway!
