Default Cost of tail-light cover

Hey everyone I just joined up here,

I was wondering how much a driver'* side rear tail-light cover for my 1990 LE

So if anyone know'* where I could get one and for how much I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks

Need to know exactly which part or parts fell off. The reflector housing, the inner lens, the outer lens. Part numbers will be provided!

hmmm...not sure i'll have to check on that for you
I found most of the parts granted it was night I'm gonna go look again tommorow when it'* not dark out
There'* nothing but air in front of the bulbs if that tells you anything...
but, there is nothing in front of the bulbs just them and the metal behind.

Left side or right side?

I just swung a deal with Devon ( a guy in the club here) I'm buying his rear tail lights, my passenger side light has a small crack.

I might be able to help you out depending on the side and what Devon and I work out regarding time lines etc.

I'll keep an eye on this thread, hopefully we can help you out!!!

It'* possible they still make them. If nothing else, the GM part number will help you find the parts at the wrecker. Check with me or Jr before you cross parts. The 87-91'* are confusing as to what parts fit which years and models. They're all quite different.

JTP, you need the outer lens.

GM PART # 16512584
CATEGORY: Tail Lamp
PACK QTY: 1 CORE CHARGE: $0.00
GM LIST: $151.20
OUR PRICE: $90.72
DESCRIPTION: LENS ASM

That'* the Left taillight for a 90SE. They still make it and sell it. That'* just the outer lens.

When did they go to the orange turn signals (like Jr'*) was it 90...? was 89 the last year of the solid red/black type?

It'* not necessarily just year-dependent. It'* changed by model AND year. The 87-91 taillights are a PITA to sort out for part numbers. The book doesn't make it easy.

Thanks, willwren

It is the outer lens I need.

Maybe the inner lense too? Is that only on the SSE'* because all the inner lenses stated that they were w/SSE where as the part number you gave me for the outer was w/o SSE leading me to believe that either the inner lenses are different and not avaliable for the LE and SE models or are SSE exclusive.

Anyway I know where I can get the outer for 100+ if I can't find one at a junkyard I'm gonna call round today.
