1972 should still be the old style headlight units, you replace the whole headlight.

It is not a sealed beam headlight, it has a separate lens and gasket. Any suggestions? Thanks!


I looked through all of my old suppliers and no one has even a listing for a lens and seal. You could try some of the BMW forums, maybe someone there might know of a replacement.
