    I just bought a set of headlights to replace mine with broken tabs. I was taking them apart to sand down to get rid of the plastic haze.

    I was taking the bulbs out and noticed that they all have cracked o-rings. One of them just fall apart into several pieces. Now the bulb fits really loosely without the o-ring. I was thinking I could just shove a similar sized o-ring on there to compensate, but is there a better replacement?

    Also, what is this other bulb thingy? It was way up in the corner. It almost looks like a temp sensor, but I'm pretty sure it's a light. This is a set of "blacked out" headlights, so maybe that's why it looks the way it does.

    the bulb pops in and out of that plastic shroud/extension. Its just a typical 194 wedge

    I think you could substitute an appropriate sized o-ring for that lamp fixture and it would work equally well.
