I actually just broke the cover, no damage to the lights, is it an easy fix to replace the clear cover?
Expert:  Ron Z. replied 7 years ago.
It's not a tough fix to replace the clear cover, however, you will most likely have to order it through the dealer as it is too new to find in a junk yard. You may be just better off replaceing the assembly as a unit than to drive yourself nuts trying to find just the clear cover.
