Kitten headlights

Post by Bluebird » Wed May 16, 2018 9:04 pm

My Kitten rectangular headlights are suffering from reflector corrosion. I suspect that they are the same as Rialto, perhaps the same as the Dolphin, probably the same as the Fiat 126/127, but does anyone know for sure?
What cars used the same headlight? Does anyone have an equivalents list to find makers and numbers?
Thanks in advance. Dick

It's a long time since I replaced a Kitten headlamp but have a look at these, I think they are the ones you are after. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-CAPRI-H ... SwlSda9Ehj or https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NOS-Lucas-Br ... Swi69ZzM1S

but take care that the mounting / adjusting lugs are in the same place(s), some will list as 'compatible' but you can never really tell :-(
