so i got my timing belt done couple months back and came back with a broken headlight tab. makes my passenger side light droop down a little bit.

so the question is..how should i fix the broken tab???

its broken near the base on the headlight. was thinking some kind of adhesive and tape or somthin..not sure

I think awe or someone sells repair kits? anyone know what im talking about?

but i just wire tied my headlights in place. deer hit it and broke all my tabs and pivot points. works fine actually, its a half ass job, but better than 400 for new lights when the fronts look fine.

Find a good 2-part plastic epoxy or JB weld would work.
