Tail light lens blown-out

Coming across Arizona the other day, the red portion of my right taillight disappeared - ripped right out. Very bad wind storm with more blowing dust/dirt than I had ever seen while making that crossing of the state.

I've found the post for the Ford lens number but just wondering if the whole lens, whole light fitting or just the red portion can be replaced.
Thanks.
David

lens assembly comes as a unit, but don't need the whole light assembly.

The plastic lens comes as a one piece unit and last time I had to but one, it was not cheap. Have you tried a junk yard for the light assembly.

Put the part number in Ebay. I'm waiting on a motor for my awning that I ordered this way. Saved $$$$.

Hello Dave; the Tail light assembly is off a 1995 – 2004 Ford E-Series Van or Ford Excursion. You can find them on e-bay. Here is one seller who selling both Left & Right tail light assembly for about $40.00 with free shipping. Just follow the e-bay link above.

This is a bit unusual but not unprecedented--during one of our trips a few years ago, I noticed that one of the seams on the taillight had cracked. Didnt loose the lens and was able to super-glue it but I remember commenting at the time that the segmented lens in the assembly could easily crack or separate.
