    Hi all.
    I found a pair of these NOS reflectors amongst some parts I've had in storage for years. I assume I originally thought they were to suit Mk1 Prefacelift Capri front indicators, but they certainly aren't the same as my originals and won't interchange. An online search hasn't helped, any clues anyone?

    Steve..
    they are indeed Capri front indicator reflector assemblies
    parts catalogue - section J3.10 item 6.. finis code 0801317 / part no 69EG 13385BA
    fitted from 12/68-08/72.. not for Italian market!

    Italian market - 0801316 / 69EG 13385CA

    there was an earlier variant - 0800299 / 69EG 13385AA but was only fitted 12/68-02/69

    Thanks for the detailed reply!
    I checked several headlamp assemblies I have and they all have a different type of reflector. I will see if they interchange but I suspect they might mount to different backing plates than the UK spec versions.

    I dug out my collection of headlamps, and the reflectors are different. I guess it's possible my new ones are in the wrong boxes?

    If I offer up the reflectors to the lenses, you can see that the mounting holes don't match up with the holes in the lenses. The other reflectors seem to be part of the main headlamp base and not removable.

    I found my old 1969 Capri parts list and it shows the same setup as my old headlamps.

    Can you possibly post up the info you have that shows the reflectors?

    is there any sign of a part number on the actual lamp reflectors themselves..?

    There are some printed numbers, but no Ford identification unfortunately.

    yeah, saw them in the original post.. doesn't seem to mean much..
    take it the mounting holes are way out for the backplates.. have you tried lining up a couple of lenses ?

    Yes, the mounting holes don't match up - see edited post above you may have missed.

    Do you have any pictures from the catalogue you found the part numbers in?
