There are two seals in each front turn signal between the lens and the metal housing that the two screws go through. Where can I get these-mine have fallen apart. There is a part number listed in the exploded diagram, but I could not find any while searching for that number.

Thanks

I have never had luck finding these. Try rubber washers from a hardware store. I think the original ones were square.

Exactly-attached to the metal base are square nuts and the original seals were square so they fit tight on the nuts.

I figured you would know the best.

Thanks

Found one original seal on my front turn signal and it is round just like the one in the parts manual. If you look closely at the housing around the square base you will see that the metal is newer looking in a 1/2" circle were the round washer use to be. In the parts manual you will notice that the washer is the same (19) as the earlier version of the turn signal. But the part number for the earlier version according to others like Wolfburgswest is 111 953 061 not 111 953 197. You may want to try the 111 953 061. It looks very similar to the one in the parts manual.

If you happen to be still looking for these seals, I made some up and can send you a couple if you like.
