Hi there,
Pigeons always have terrible timing; thank goodness it was only the light fitting. I've had a look at the Workshop Manual and ETKA. The outer plastic cover doesn't have a separate part number, which means it almost certainly isn't available separately, nor are there any instructions in the Manual about how to remove/replace it. Looking at your photo, I think some of the internal reflectors were damaged as well, so I'm afraid this will be a whole-fitting replacement, not a single part job.

Assuming yours is pre-2017, the part number is 1S1 941 015 M; this is the left headlight with black trim for right-hand drive models. If you have chrome trim, it's 1S1 941 015 N.

Bad luck (and a big Pigeon !) I was going to say, if you put the unit in a heat box, you can then split the lamp with a Stanley knife, its what the headlamp modifiers do. However, you need to buy a donor unit......er DOH !! :unsure:

all fixed now got 2nd hand one of ebay sadly when fitting snapped the indicator cables out of the plug but ended up heat shrinking the cables of the new lamp cut cables as the donar one luckily had all the plugs bulbs and some wires so they were cut and heatshrinked them and just using that got away quite lucky as i learnt next time take the bumper of for more space?‍♂?
