Rear light replacement question

Recommended Posts

I have a crack in the cover of my left rear light. It is an MOT failure and I am trying to source a cheaper part than the ludicrously priced one Halford have found(£325 fitted!).

Does anybody know if you can buy/replace just the lens? I have looked online but can only find a whole light, which is why it's proving expensive.

Have you got a scrapyard locally? A light lens, being plastic, would normally be only a couple of quid. Good luck.

I do.  Do you know if you can definitely get the plastic lens independent of the whole light assembly? I can't find it separate anywhere.

Hi on ebay whole rear lights about £20

Alot cheaper than halfords

I can find saloon rear lights for around £20 but estate lights seem to be around £70. Still cheaper than new, which are£195!

The beauty of an old-fashioned scrapyard is that you can take some tools and have a go at removing just the lens to avoid buying too much. I'd have a go at removing the lens from the other side as to avoid damaging the light that I wanted. My local scrappy doesn't mind this kind of thing as money for plastic is a win-win for them - they are really interested in metal. So take the tools and have a go before you buy - I would.

Thanks for the advice, I'll give that a go.
