The below links are to known businesses that can assist you with replacing your headlight lenses etc.


Fog/Driving Lights

Both the T1/2 TS50 fog lights and the T3 TE50/TS50 driving lights are available aftermarket.  But for how long?

The Comet 450 fog lights are reportedly a direct match to the units supplied to FTE for the T1/2 TS50 fog lights, however the aftermarket units carry a Hello login in the centre.  This can be removed.

 

At the time of writing (September 2017), the Hella Comet FF200 driving lights used on the T3 TE50 and TS50 were no longer appearing in the Hella Australia catalogue, but are still readily available on eBay. These are reportedly an exact replacement for the factory fitted Driving light assemblies.  These are also available as a Fog light so be careful when ordering.

Headlining

Any motor trimmer can do this for you, although one or two have been known to reject the job if a sunroof is fitted. Send an email to webmaster@tseriesclub.org if someone has done a good job for you.

Very reasonably priced if you remove and refit the headlining yourself ($150 instead of $280).  They’ll help with the last step of removal.
