So just got this indicator imported from Germany, and it doesn’t fit my 75 front.
The shape is correct but the bolt holes are at a different angle to the 75 so the screws won’t go in.
What's the part number on the blue box?
Yeah there were 2 designs - IIRC Cibie brand and Hella brand (possibly one had 2 screws and the other 3?) You might be able to find some of the 2-screw housings to suit your new orange lenses...
1234139 is a right hand Hella lens. It fits into a RH Hella housing, p/n 1259739.
If your existing lens or housing is a Cibie, it will likely have that brand name or "France" embossed on it somewhere.
Got some Cibie ones imported from the US, $150 aud (idk how bad that is but I got them now so). Got them used but in amazing condition for the age
Looks good. I might do that on my yellow 245 as I think I have a couple from my US days...
I guess $150AUD isn't bad if they're excellent. GCP.SE has them brand new (OEM). $198AUD delivered for the pair. $45USD each plus $49USD FedEx shipping. Shipping a bit high if you're just buying 2x lenses but if you get more goodies it would make more sense.
P/N 1234138 & 1234139...if anyone else wants to do the same! :)
Just be sure you get the right ones with the right screw number, don’t be me
Yeah if I were going to buy them for that kinda price I'd wanna be sure! :) I do like the look!
I had a similar issue where i ordered this indicator from IPD USA: https://www.ipdusa.com/products/5507/111071-volvo-turn-signal-lens-left-aftermarket-34430185-1312624
But the hole pattern doesn't line up with my 1989 Volvo 240 wagon :-/ So they're useless to me. Might have to find the USA style housing to suit?
You can make those US-style ones fit the AUS housings...I just bent up a small bit of tin into the correct shape with a couple holes in it...screw that to the housing then screw the lens into the tin. IIRC it was a bit of a Z-shape and the US lens had the mounting screw about 10 mm outboard and 5 mm rearward of the AUS housing. Here's a pic of mine. I also painted the headlamp plastic housings black as they were going sort of a chalky grey colour. Got that idea from @AshDVS as he had done it on his red 240.
Yeah I have done the above before. The correct fitment are available out of Europe though, which reminds me I need to purchase a couple sets.
I have found them at https://shop.klracing.se/sv/artiklar/blinkersglas-vita-volvo-240-81-vanster-sida.html Can't seem to figure out the shipping part to get through the checkout though.
Easier source but need to buy other things to make the shipping worth while - https://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/indicator/lens-indicator-front-left/1004465/
