Avensis Front Indicator Lens

Recommended Posts

ok, how does the front indicator lens cover fit on to the car?

Mine has "popped" out and there must be something missing.

I have 3 long "fins" on the lens that I can see will fit in the hole mounting. But there is no way for the lens to hold there. I expected to see a J shaped piece of plastic that snaps in place, but there is no evidence of anything broken on the lens cover.

how does the lens cover stay in place?

many thanks.

Its a 1999 V plate 1.8. I owned a corolla previously and this had a support that screwed on to the top of the headlamp unit. There is no such fitting on this model.

There aren't any screws/fixings to hold the indicator in, except one of the fins should have an L-shaped end that slots into a catch on the car - sorry I can't explain it much better than that! Compare with the indicator on the other side, it can be removed by inserting a long flat-bladed screwdriver into the hole directly behind the headlight and pressing down on the retaining catch

"one of the fins should have an L-shaped end that slots into a catch"

This is what Im expecting. But there isnt anything like this and no sign that its broken off. I tried to look at the other side, but the screen washer filler tube is in the way and I didnt want to go and force something off when I wasnt even sure how it came off. I'll have another look at the weekend.

Many thanks.
