Default xenon headlight lens '06 s80

To All,

I just discovered the left xenon headlight glass lens cover on my 06 s80 is cracked/shattered. The headlight functions properly and there is no visible damage to any other portion of the headlight kit except the glass cover. I contacted my Volvo dealer and they informed me... that only the full xenon headlight replacement kit is available ($1050 ouch!). That is disappointing because all we should be talking here is around $50-$100 for a piece of replacement glass. Does anyone know of a company that specializes in replacement glass built to fit later model Volvo xenon headlights? I've noticed some volvo s80 glass xenon headlight lenses (99-03) for sale on ebay for $59 (AutoLampsPlus)... does anyone know firsthand if these glass lenses will fit the 06 s80? Lastly, can anyone recommend a good auto scrapyard that specializes in Volvos that might have a used xenon headlight kit to fit my car on hand?

Thanks!

ouch that hurts. i had my 2001 glass replaced because it was 'sand blasted' with age. i would try a good volvo indy who may have a better source. mine employs a part time volvo dealer mechanic and can get anything.

My halogen lens had cracked and it cost me over $100 for the part so I dont think 50-100 is a reasonable estimate for yours... I dont agree with the dealer price though...
Anyway, ebay is always a good resource, I have gotten lenses for older volvos there without much trouble
And regards scrap yards, I normally use this site http://www.uneedapart.com/
It sends the info out to multiple yards..
