Default Headlight

After driving on the freeway today, my headlight cracked because of a rock. There is a big hole in the lens and it spider webbed on me. Has anyone changed the headlight piece, or the lense it self. what problems did you encouter, did you remove the grill, or the bumper. any other things had to be removed? where can i get a headlight that will fit perfectly, or should i just get it from the dealer, any past experience with this guys? help me out please

I have heard of alot of people buying the Glass off of E-bay.

You will have to remove or loosen the front bumper and slide it out to get the Headlight out.

You won't if the gasket between the glass and housing is cracked air will get in there as well.

Not to sure what to tell you because you have to remove/loosen the front bumper to get the light out.
