Headlight vent

Hi,

Does anybody knows where can I find this rubber part attached to the headlight vent?

I've lost mine...



Thanks!

on a new headlamp...

When I realised mine was missing, I just blocked it- the odd-looking bit in the middle of the lamp rear is a big vent anyways.

That's the rubber the mice keep eating on mine. You can find similar looking pieces on car engine vacuum lines on a wreck. My brake bleeder kit has various ones also. Not overly important.

Thanks a lot Reaver!

A quick search at google for "vacuum line" returned me a lot of options that I can easily find to replace the missing part.

I'm just a little bit sad about not being able to find the original one. I'm trying to see this as an upgrade.

Do NOT block this vent or you will end up with a burnt reflector like me.

Trailer Queens don't need headlights.

I'd just stuff a piece of brass wool in the hole. It will still vent, and I doubt the mice will like the taste.
