Replace passenger side headlight lens?? Just the outside

Replace passenger side headlight lens??
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Sadly you can't get just the lens for these or any other headlight assemblies these days. You will have to either go with a used headlight assembly or an aftermarket new assembly to save money. I wish there was a better way, but it's really the only way you can do it. You may also get a body shop to buff the lenses for less then it costs to replace the headlight assembly. It's not a permanent repair, but usually you get a couple years out of it. Sorry it's not better news.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
