Thread: r90/6 correct turn signals

    r90/6 correct turn signals

    I have a 1976 r90/6 that I have been slowly working over, and I keep finding questionable repairs. I removed the front turn signals, and something doesn't seem right. I have the black plastic type turn signals with the tightening screw located inside the housing, are they correct for my year/model? They were "shimmed" with electrical tape to keep them in place. Am I missing a rubber seal or something?

    Any help is appreciated.

    My new 76 /6 came with the black housings. The clamps get warped by overtightening. With some judicious bending of the tabs they can be made to tighten properly again.

    There is a special grommet for the housing. If it is missing, you need one.

    Those Black Plastic Signal Housings are famous for getting loose.

    If you are not stuck on "originality" you can use /5 turn signal housings that are aluminum and they won't come loose.

    That's what I did.

    Max BMW has the parts fiche online. When in doubt, checking the original parts fiche is the way to go.
    Here's a link to the fiche for your R90/6.

    Select number 63 (Lighting) and scroll down the diagrams to 63_0349 - TURN INDICATOR.

    Thanks for the info. Looks like I need to order some grommets.
