I'd suggest for the price getting a good used one off ebay -I see them on there 'all' the time for under $50.
I took the drivers headlight apart on my 1998 SSE to fix a chip on the inside of the lense, and the reflector was pealing so I used high temp chrome paint. Stupid me for having turned the headlights on immediataly upon putting them back together. All the gases emitted from the drying paint and silicone fogged the inside of the lense up really good and the paint turned to more of the grey.
Remove headlight assembly from the car.
Remove clips (4 for the 1992-1999 headlights) that secure the lense to the rear/reflector side of the housing. Use a flat screw driver and a heat gun (hair dryer on high) and slowly turn the screw driver to peel the two sides apart.
Use clear silicone when resealing, using a fine bead, but enough to make a full seal all the way around. put the lense in place, reinstall the clips, and let cure before turning the headlights on.
May take up to 24 hours to cure, but worth the wait if you don't want to redo it.
