Re: Fog light broken glass - MOT issue?

If you do need to live with it. I would suggest running a very fine line of superglue along the split.

Firstly, it will prevent the crack worsening & a piece falling out.

Secondly, it will prevent water ingress leading to either the lens misting up, or even worse, water shorting out the electrics.

I had a similar problem on my VS, and that's what fixed it for me.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
