Unhappy Lost a Headlight Washer Cover - Help!

Hey all,

When I got back home from BimmerFest just now, I noticed my passenger side headlight washer cover flew off of my E92 M3 Replica Front Bumper. Does anyone know the part # for this?

Also, can I go to the dealership and ask for an OEM E92 M3 passenger headlight washer cover? Will it fit my M3 replica bumper?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Here you go! #61677171660 http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/61677171660/ Runs about $16 and comes primered so you will have to get it painted. Same thing happened to me when I had the M3 rep bumper!

Thanks a lot man!! My car is Jet Black so it's a very easy black to match. I hope a rattle spray can from Advanced Auto will work.

GOOD NEWS. The headlight washer cover from my stock Pre-LCI bumper fits this one. I thought they would be different but they are not. I'm dumb for not checking this first. Thanks for the help though.

Hi guys same happened to me these covers popped out once the weather started getting cold. I lost one of the covers on some A road probably and found the other on my drive way.

However how do I stick them back on and ensure they dont come off? Is super glue or araldite a good adhesive for metal to plastic?

Use super glue. You can also try to zip tie it from the back in case the glue wears out overtime.

DONT use super glue. It doesnt flex and will eventually fall off. Use some silicone on the back and it will not fall of. Superglue is too brittle and is not made for a bumper which can occasionally flex.

Thanks guys. The silicon stuff is that the seals we use in baths? Are you sure that will hold it on? Or i there a different kind you are talking about?

Superglue hasn't failed me. It has held up fine since I first posted about it. It's been through rain, warm weather, and cold weather.

I ended up using an epoxy, araldite, thanks for the tips. I did tie the covers up to the washer jet extender thing, should the glues fail.

I would imagine JBweld would work well.
