Replacement for cracked headlight Lens.

Hi, Everyone I have a 1999 Gulf Stream Scenic Cruiser and the drivers side headlight has a crack from stone hit. Water is inside and is steaming up the lens. Can anyone suggest a place that might have a replacement headlight lens assembly? I suspect that the builders buy up outdated leftover stock from vehicle manufacturers and design the front end of the motorhome around them, so this headlight unit may be far older than 1999. Other than that minor problem, I am beginning to enjoy the GS. Any help would be appreciated.

Diesel One......Usually the headlights are from automobiles. Mine are off of a 97-02 Buick Century. You need to identify the lens. I would start with a Google search of GM headlights a few years older than your coach and see if any look the same.

It's a slow process, but you can start here looking for your lens Headlights & Parking Lights at 1A Auto

If you look on the headlight you should find a number on the lense like a tyc 20-12345 (example) do a Google search for that number and it will probably show up for you. Mine are off of a '95 Chevy caprice, that's how I found them. Good luck.

Once you figure out what head light you need I'd look at
EBaymotors.com or rockauto.com for the one you need.

I don't know if this is getting posted properly, but thank you from DieselOne to everyone for your replies to my cracked headlight lens question. I am well on my way to finding the right lens and the site suggestions are very much appreciated.
