2004 36' Alpine Coach Tail Light Lens

Does anyone know where I can find the red lens cover for the passenger side tail light for our 2004 Alpine Coach (37' MDDS)? Ours is somewhere between Holbrook and Gila Bend, AZ.

The information I got off the remaining lens (clear bottom lens) is:

SAE IP2RST-97 DOT
TMC (triangle w/ a T in it symbol) GLO-BRITE
7453/5 USA

Thanks.

Susie

Susie,

Here is a link to the thread that discusses the rear light lenses.

Thanks guys. I checked out the posting you sent me and then searched for the part mentioned in that posting (Ford Econoline 1992-1994 tail light lens #F2UZ 13404). Unfortunately, that is not our tail light. Our tail light assembly wraps around the corner of the coach. It is a 3-piece lens: amber on top, large red in the center, clear on the bottom. I have also written to TMC GLO-BRITE, who I believe based on the part number, is the manufacturer of the lens. Am still waiting to hear from them. If I find the part I will post the source for anyone else who may need it in the future.

Susie

Susiebee:

My 2003 lens is exactly as you describe and is from a Ford Econoline van. I'm not sure of the part number, but easily found it on nearly every website peddling OEM replacement tail lights. Many manufacturers used that lens. Just saw a Travel Supreme with the same one, this morning. That identical lens was used for many years.

Thanks for sticking with me. It's difficult to tell from the parts catalogue I looked at whether the lens is flat or bends around the back corner. And I couldn't find a measurement in that particular catalogue. Our lens measures 9.5" wide x 12" long. The red lens is 6.5" long. Are those the measurements on your 2003? I have included a photo of our driver's side lens.

Thanks again.

Susie

If in doubt, I'd take the good lens out and see a Ford dealer. Asking if they have a tail light assembly for a 1994 Ford Econoline van, you can take yours along and compare. Call first, to be sure a dealer has it in stock.

Good luck, BTW looks exactly like our 2000. I think ALL Alpines have that lens.

Thank you Tom, Patty, takepride, Jim, and MaryJo. Got home, found a tail light in great condition at a junk yard, and we're just about set for the next road trip.

Thanks again. Susie and John
