Replacement Driving Lights

Both of my driving lights are cracked and need to be replaced. Has anyone found a source for replacements?

Happy Holidays, Dan!

I bought a replacement at Amazon. Here's the link:
Amazon.com: HELLA 005750411 500 Series 12V/55W Halogen Driving Lamp: Automotive

And here's the description:
HELLA 005750411 500 Series 12V/55W Halogen Driving Lamp


The case and mounting is exactly the same as the original Alpine lights but the blue label in the center of the front wasn't there on my originals.

I believe that it is a direct replacement and I'm quite happy with it.

Cheers!

The other thing you need to get are the plastic covers that fit over the lens, part H87988081. They will stop rocks cracking the glass again.

As I get older, I tend to forget more things than I use to. Always wondered when I would use my driving lights if they were covered to prevent rock dings? Doubt if I would stop to remove the covers and there is always the possibility that I might forget/or accidently turn on the lights with the covers on. Wonder if something in a wire mesh is available--like GT-style? Otherwise, skip the light bulbs, buy the covers and if nothing else, you will look good.

Old Scout,
The covers are clear and you leave them on all the time.

OH--my bad--the ones I am use to seeing on the hella lights are solid white, like the those on dune buggies.....So the clear covers can take the heat from the lights???...WOW--I learn something everyday--some times twice a day....
