Default Fog Light Lenses

I have a 95 SSEi. Does anybody know if the fog light lenses can be replaced on that model? Mine are pitted real bad. I really don't want to replace them with after market...I'd like to stay stock. Just the lenses are in real bad shape.

nope they are plastic, and you either have to get a whole new housing for them or get aftermarket ones

Just make sure to NOT go through a dealership or other mechanic. They rip you off. I belive when my grandpa had ONE replaced at a shop, it was like $90! it'* an easy replacement for yourself to do.

I got a junkyard replacement for $15, bracket, bulb and all. Of course it has some pitting too.

a few options, cyber whites, the angel eyes, or anything else that fits in the hole.

Cyberwhites are nicer to oncoming traffic, but many have a blue lens. Angel Eyes cost more, have some bling, and light up above the road (nice if you're doing rollercoaster roads, but not in traffic).

However i do use mine if the conditions warrant it. Driving in crazy snow is so easy now. Also helps when rain has covered the road and you can't see lines.

Both are great, work fine, and will make you happy.

Default Junk Yards....

Check your local junk yards.... Mine were pitted beyond all belief. Went to local yard, they had 96 SSE and it will fit the 95 as well. Sometimes the crossover books are not too accurate. I picked mine up for 60.00 in perfect shape including lens, bulbs and connector (didn't need it). Kept the best old one for a "spare". I dont know about later years but heck only takes about 5-10 mins to take one of yours out to double check at junkyard.

Pop the hood and come in from above with I believer a 10MM deep well on a 3" extention. They will be out in a Flash.

Good Luck,
Craig
