touareg headlamp lenses for sale...

I am trying to find out how many people would be interested in buying brand new, dot sae certified lenses for their t1 instead of buying the whole headlamp unit? The reason I am asking this is because I might be able to order exact to size after market lenses but they need to be ordered in somewhat of large quantities. Your answers and opinions are greatly appreciated.

For what purpose since they are not easily changed. I am not sure if I understand what you are trying to do here. Is it an overlay to the stock ones or an actual replacement clear piece? If the later there is not easy way to get the original one off since it is a sealed unit.

My TT's units were sealed, and after 10 min in the oven pealed right apart =) Not sure if that is the same here but I would love to just find lens's as mine are garbage!

Krak et al have baked theirs off, but times and temps seem to vary... I think he's trying to replace the lens which may have yellowed, broken ...

In regards to the responses, yes I want to replace just the lens of the headlight since the ones on the headlamps according to a lot of people on the forum are not made/designed for the hid setup. I want to see how many people would be interested because if a lot of treg owners would buy just the lenses, I can contact a company that can possibly fabricate the exact lens to specs, better quality in regards to that the lens won't fade, scratch or crack, and made of much better quality. The only problem is that I would have to order the lenses in bulk. So depending on how many would be interested is how I will decide to order them. So please let me know.

in regards to removing the lense it can be done but you need to BREAK the assembly to get them off and the oven trick does not work on the sealant they use in the T1 headlight assembly, you will need to BREAK the top of the assembly where the lense slides inbetween in order to get the lens off, Not for the weak at heart.

it will be easier to take the headlights out and take them to any local body shop and have them sand the lens with 800 then 1000 to 2000 grit, and buff with a wool pad. like brand new when there done
