Not sure I'd trust even an ABS printed adjuster, and definitely not a PLA printed one...

Should be trivial to make a model and 3d print it in ABS if somebody wants to be a ginny pig. I have some fetching yellow ABS ATM ;D

You shouldn't. The original is also ABS. ;)

The picture Vega posted is from my reproduction. I was lucky enough to have some contacts in the 3D printing world and got at it. We have tried several options like ABS, which has several disadvantages. After quite some testing I ended up having these print on an industrial 3D printer, using Nylon as a fillament. I dare to say it is better than the original and not as costly as the aluminium ones.

Fun fact, the other adjuster in the headlight on the outer side... the one that never breaks... is also from nylon. So were the adjusters in the very old headlights before the clear 'glass' Hella units were available.

Also tried a version from Poland, made from PU and with a metal front.. that one came loose after less than a year.

Do you have a link to where I can order yours?

Thanks

Jan

I've sent you a PM.
