I just noticed the glass on my passenger side headlamp is cracked. It looks like I picked up a rock, and there's a 12 inch fracture line right across the middle. <p>First off, is it possible to replace the lens?<p>I searched online, and couldn't find a replacement lens for the R. Does anyone know where I can find this part? I REALLY don't want to pay $1300 for an entire headlight module. <p>Thanks for your help! <IMG SRC="http://images2b.snapfish.com/232323232%7Ffp53449%3Enu%3D3334%3E747%3E8%3B6%3EWSNRCG%3D325%3A425%3A46336nu0mrj" BORDER="0">

Something to consider for the future could be a headlight protecting film, such as XPEL. Plenty of people own cars forever without a headlight problem, but anything is possible. My $0.02.

What I had done in the past for folks like yourself, is direct them to the classifieds or ebay to get a busted lamp (usually the glass or tabs are shot). If it's the tabs, just un-glue the lens and swap yours out. <p>I'd offer to sell you mine, but everybody keeps breaking their pass. side!<p>Other option is to go through insurance, depending on what your deductible is. <p>Feel free to sell/donate your old one to me <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Xpel will not protect against rocks that can crack glass lens... You'll need these. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o12/ifnt420/DSC03163Large.jpg" BORDER="0"><br> <br>I know, I've been through 2 headlamps already. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Do they make these for the R? If so I would love a set. The rocks from last winter are cracking my expel film.

Re: Cracked Headlamp Lens - 04 R (martini876)

Thanks for all the responses! <p>I couldn't find anyone who would sell a replacement lens. The cheapest module I found was about $450, with broken tabs. I have a $500 deductible, but I'd rather not turn this in to the insurance company because I just had a claim 3 months ago. (Where they replaced THIS frikkin' headlight) <p>So money's a little tight right now. Is this crack something that would cause damage to the headlamp module if not replaced quickly? I'm concerned about water shorting out the ballast / ignitor. (I guess I could run a bead of caulk across the crack. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> ) <p>Is there any possibility Viva might have this part in stock soon? <br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0">

Sorry for the slight thread hijack, but does anyone know if the clear glass lens from the R HID headlamps will fit a run of the mill s60? Ive been toying with the idea of installing R HID spec headlamps in my wifes car, but would much prefer to retrofit my own HID projectors. Not having a smooth glass though is putting a hold on the project. Any input?

Re: (Turb04S60)

I'd suggest picking up some 05+ halogen lamps w/ the plastic lens and doing a retro on a set of those - they can be found fairly cheap on ebay.<p><br>
