Now you can reply. I have run out of pics! :park:

There was one rusty screw holding the "Ballast Unit" ? in place. That is now toast.

More dismantling will probably be happening. I would like to get the lens polished up properly, I will send it to someone when I have funds!

Powerbulbs do the Osram factory-standard bulb for under £50 each, and it's worth looking out for Neolux which appears to be a sort of "trade" sub-brand of Osram.
Currently running one in my wagon after the "pair" of Osrams supplied by HIDS-Direct turned out to have different colour temps, and then one failed prematurely. Prices online seem to vary enormously though - from £30 to £130 for the same bulb!
