pmassey31545 There are several people that have new lights on eBay...but they are costly.

If the rubber is completely gone, it will need to be replaced. As for what I did...mine were sagging and cracked. I used a piece of this round metal to support it and pushed it in as far as it would go...similar to the Bic pen fix. Then I coated the rubber several times with black Plasticote which can be bought at Walmart. Looks pretty good and worked pretty good.

I ended up putting some cheap LEDS on the back.

Yes. Take the tape off. lol It is difficult to tell you how to fix it with all the tape covering the actual extent of the problem. If it is just a broken rubber (plastic) section many here have used a Bic pen minus the internal parts. It seems that the pen is the exact OD to match the ID of the rubber section. This will work if it is a clean break in that portion of the light. Use a little black sealant between the parts and slide the pen barrel inside with the wires passing through the opening after cutting to a required size. I suggest that you leave the pen barrel as long as possible to give added strength. There should be one or several writeups on this topic here if you use the search option at the top of the page. The second option is to replace it with after market lights or exact models you might find in the Sell or Swap section or other sources as already mentioned. Several members that have used the Bic pen method have not had further problems for many years now. Good luck.

michiganteddybear actual "repair" of that, not happening. the turn signal is available as a replacement part. also lots of options for aftermarket as well.


there are some methods out there to use items like a bic pen body to go inside and strengthen, as well as one method I seen actually cut the bad part out of the signal stalk, and connected the signal ball to the mount. in effect shortening it.
