Default Warning to those with Ebay clear corners...

Be careful with the little part that "juts out" towards the headlight (at least on the 92-95). It is really brittle and breaks easy. I just cracked mine installing my new headlight (courtesy of JimmyFloyd).

yeah, I think it since that area is a corner it is prone to chip off.

My ebay clear drivers corner light was already broken when it came out of the box from shipping. Saved the box with the broken piece for gluing later and this morning I just found out my brother threw the box with my old corners, and the piece I need, in the trash last week.

Yeah, mine came broken in the box. I shipped them back and they shipped me a second set. They were also broken, so I made them ship me the broken one in new packaging and it finally arrived unbroken.

I made him ship me a new one to replace the broken one in better packaging so it got here safe. It did.
