FSTI headlight OEM part numbers

Morning all,

Does anyone know the OEM part numbers for a 2007 FSTI headlights. Iím moving to Germany & have to get headlights for driving on the wrong side of the road.

Iíve emailed Subaru Online Parts who said the lights they supply will not work properly or not at all, and another place that say check that my OEM part numbers match the ones they are selling.

Any help much appreciated.

FSTI 07

Ben's aka Northernlight's car that is registered in Germany and has a manual switch to control the height of the headlights (i.e no auto levelling) is now fitted with:
84001SA623 and 84001SA634.
I was told these are xenon but I haven't checked opposed forces.

Does your car have manual or auto levelling?

Being a 2007 model I assume a revision E which means auto levelling (revision A-D had manual levelling) in which case you need LHD XT headlights with auto levelling (AFAIK all XTs in Germany with HIDs are fitted with auto levelling).

Is this of any help?

84001A & 84001B

I very much doubt a dealer will be able to match a JDM number to tell you what you need.

As mentioned above if your car has auto levelling you probably need to buy LHD autolevelling (not that there is any other option in germany at least) HIDs for a XT.

Looking at the exploded diagram, you might be able to get away by replacing your existing reflectors with LHD reflectors, parts 14,17 from http://opposedforces.com/parts/fores...llustration_3/ as this is what changes the beam pattern.

In that case you need 84991SA380 & 84991SA390 and being brave enough to open your existing headlights.

Let me know how you get on as I might be interested at some point!

Strangely enough I can't find the numbers quoted for Ben's car (84001SA623 and 84001SA634) in the opposed forces catalogue.

Thanks Fivos, my lights are auto levelling so will need replacing.

I doubt i'll try replacing the reflectors but thanks for the info. I'd just end up with a garage floor covered in little bits of headlight and a car i cant use.

So the XT ones will fit an FSTI if i understand you correctly. I've just had a look on ebay.de, there's loads for 03-05 but none for 07.

I remember you saying the lights cost the new owner of Northernlights car over £1000, i'm looking for a cheaper alternative if possible.

Seperating the front lens from the reflector is not that bad. I did mine with a heat gun and a bit of patience in order to seal a water leak and polish off all the calcium residue that evaporated water leaves.

Then sealed with this:
Halfords | Granville Black Silicone Sealant 40g

Year later no problems!

Give yourself plenty of time tho. Some people put the light in the oven.... that is a bit pro for me.

Thanks for the replies, i've only just seen them.

It sounds like i really ought to give it a go, the car's going in to storeage for a few weeks on Monday so i'll have time to get my courage up & give it a go.

Cheers,

Oli
