Broken RH headlight

Post by Nagaman »

Well a panel of plasterboard flew off a mobile office whilst being transported along River Rd Kialla (Shepparton bypass).
I know it’s plasterboard because a piece is still lodged in the drivers side headlight.
I have the footage logged at 14:11:43 today (Saturday).
If it was a murder investigation I’m pretty sure the rego would be found to be legible........however I don’t have the forensic tools.
Anyone know anything about best place for a new headlight ?
The front bumper and upper guard need a respray so it looks like dealIng directly with a repairer is most likely the way.........unless the evidence negates the loss of rating 1.

Umm. Not sure you have a lot of options. But considering the pricing for S & X headlights it ain't going to be cheap.

Apparently I won’t lose any more than the excess so it’s an insurance job.......which will be unique for us, being an EV.
Yet to find out where we take it.
Headlight still functions and parking sensor can be seen floating around, so headlight and painting should be it.

Has anyone had minor damage to the front and needed a Tesla specialist for the repair ? - paint and headlight seems pretty much all needed .
