Headlight Retainer - Rectangular
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:13:21 PM »
Sorry. Not sure if this question should have gone here or in the electrical section.

Does anyone know of a cheaper solution to replacing headlight retainers? I have the 4 headlight system on my 86 K10 and the screw tabs have rusted off on the top of the retainer on at least 2 of the 4. I can't see paying $25-$30 for 2 (with shipping) for what seems to be thin sheet metal. Has anyone used the universal Dorman 42407?

Thanks
Ed

You might double check your Dorman numbers.  42407 shows to be for a 2 headlamp system.  Take a look at 42405.
