Hey all, I have an ST3 and today i noticed the HID housing is rubbing on the headlines assembly when it turns. Is this fixable or do I need to find a replacement headlight?

Do you have things like balance shaft delete and/or stiff engine and trans mounts?

Duece's car did this because of the vibrations from the above. There's really nothing you can do. I mean you could try to open them up and do some sloppy repair inside but they're still going to get shaken apart.

Nope, stock mounts, suspension, and still have the balance shaft. Sounds like I'll be looking for a left headlight

Might be worth baking apart when you find a suitable replacement. Since you don't have any vibration-inducing mounts. It's possible the little screws for the shroud or projector may have loosened some. But you risk breakage when splitting a permaseal headlight
