    Question New member looking for info on replacing headlight lens

    Hi all, my name is Eldon and live in San Antonio, Tx. I have a 2008 Chevy 3500 Silverado that I have a broken headlight lens on the drivers side. Is this lens available as a separate item or does the entire headlight assy have to be replaced? In either case can someone tell me how to go about changing it. Appreciate any help I can get.

    Thanks,
    Eldon

    Hey @eldondr; welcome to the site.

    You can get the lens by itself I think, go to the GM Parts Club website and enter your Year / Make / Model and it should have a diagram down there for you if see if you can get the replacement cover of it you have to get the whole unit.

    I looked and there are Low beam bulb and High beam bulbs that are for sale on there, so yes you can get them.

    Thanks Steve, but it is the clear plastic lens that covers the entire headlight assy that I'm looking for. I called the local Chevy dealer and am told that they sell it only as a complete headlight assy. Seems absurd since I only need the clear plastic but guess that's the way it is.

    Yeah, I think that's right they only sell those OEM as the entire unit, probably a stocking thing as there are so many of them that get sold and it's got a few parts that they probably get manufactured that way to save on costs ... that is manufactured and delivered as a part assembly.

    The DEPO replacement head light is an exact copy of the OEM one and can be found very cheaply on Amazon and Ebay for about 1/3 the cost of the OEM. I bought both sides for my 2010 as I wanted them without the chrome, just in black. They are very easy to install, loosen the bolt under the wheel well liner and the two top bolts and they just pull out. I have also found many used ones on Kijiji recently.
