Default Drivers side headlamp 1993

Does anyone know where to get a good price on a driverside headlamp for a 93 bonneville. Ebay prices are at around $140. Im hoping there is a better deal out there.

Tried the local junkyards? The headlamps were used not only on Bonnevilles but also on Chevy Lumina minivans and Pontiac Trans Sport minivans, second-generation design through 1996, so your scope of hunting can be a lot wider than just Bonnevilles.

I dunno; I still think you could do a _lot_ better than $154 (plus shipping, I assume) for a headlamp if you just shop the local junkyards instead.

Plus, if I was looking for a '93 Bonneville SSEi headlamp, I'd ask for a '96 TransSport minivan headlamp instead. It'* the same part, but if they pull it off a ratty old minivan with baby barf on the back seats, they may be less likely to treat it like they were selling you the Crown jewels, price-wise... Worth a try, anyway.

Problem with all the junkyards in Fargo is they have all gone mainstream. They charge pretty much retail prices. For example, when I was researching the heated mirror issue, the junkyards here will not take apart an assembly and wanted me to pay $300 for one mirror assembly for my 93 bonneville. I can get those for $60 brand new off ebay!
