Got home today and discovered the pass side fog lamp lens got shattered somewhere along the way. <p>On Vadis, it appears to require a complete lamp assembly - I can't find a separate part number for just a lens. But at least it looks like a three-screw, 15 minute job. <p>What are these going for nowadays?<br>

Re: First nick. (sgmlaw)

Update and details, for anyone who must cross this bridge:<p>The only solution for a broken lens is a complete lamp assembly. Price is @ $85 per Red at Brentwood Volvo.<p>Note also that there are TWO lens styles, "CLEAR" and "NOT CLEAR". I was unaware of this distinction and do not know if it is a post '05 development.<br> <br>The NOT CLEAR style has focusing ribs molded into the inside glass, like a headlight. The CLEAR style is exactly what it means, a completely clear front lens glass.<p>And Volvo, even with a VIN, cannot determine which style is on any particular vehicle. So be sure to know when you order.

Open or closed from the factory.....who knows?<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Does the factory have a bunch of parts sitting around and they just pick from whatever bin is closer? What's the deal?
