Question

I just called my local dealer looking to replace the spring clips that hold the h7s in place and was told they are not listed separately. I would have to by the headlamp assembly. Think this is true? If so , anyone have a different source to use. He said it would be very expensive.

this is ONE thing I hate about hyundai lights.

I've broken more spring clips than I care to admit. sometimes I was able to blame it on faulty manufacturing..and sometimes they knew better.

My issues always revolved around the actual screw/washer that locked the clip down....snapping away from the plastic body of the headlight assembly. all of it should be made of metal.

did you try with "retrofitsource"?
they stock small parts that are missing in some retrofitting applications. They MIGHT have the clips your looking for....
worth an email anyway.

boy , coming up empty. Can't believe you have to buy the WHOLE assembly for a stupid $1.00 clip. You mean if the dealer breaks one, he has to replace the entire assembly? Hard to believe.

(that's how I got two free headlight assemblies for my 03 elantra. told the dealer his tech did it. did that at two diff dealers) I was ****..because in my opinion it's a design flaw

Luthan. I didnot break any clips. I wouldn't worry about it. I just wanted to have an extra around in case. They are very strong and pliable. Just leave yourself a lot of time for the driver's side. If you want to make it somewhat easier, remove the battery. Really easy to do. All you will lose are your radio pre-sets and the correct time on the clock. Good luck and enjoy your HIDs !
