I have a 2008 Independence and it uses '03 to '06 Ford Expedition lamps. If you look close there are a string of numbers (in my case) behind the lens, Google this number and you may get a hit.

We're you able to find a match for your G8? I have a 2006 G7 and they're pretty foggy.
Thanks,

If you just have a foggy lens you can get a kit at the auto supply to make them clear like brand new for under $10. One person used toothpaste as a cleaner. My brother in law said they use car polish to clean them and put car wax on them to keep them clear. The kit basically comes with an abrasive cleaner and then some liquid to coat them. They stay nice for a year or two. I think mine on my Honda civic stayed nice for two years. Then did it again.

I would bet the idiots put the headlight in upside down to get the drain hole on top.

Our Monaco uses headlights from a BMW 540. So don't limit your search to domestic manufacturers.

Anyone know what light the 98-99 Winnebago Cheiftain use? Also the Driving lights (Fog Lights) would be helpful as well.

Here is a pic if that will help.

Headlight Replacement

I would be interested in knowing of a headlight replacement for my MH.
Does the "rubber" piece that encircles behind the light come with it or is that an entirely different replacement piece?
Thanks

The replacements normally come with gaskets and lamps.

2000 Pace Arrow headlights

Hi all,
I recently bought a 2000 pace arrow vision Z36. I am learning a lot about what I should have looked for.... It is missing a right front lens just along side the headlights. It doesn't have any wire or bulb socket to it but I think I will need to have it fixed for my NY inspection. Does anyone know what vehicle the lens may have come from ? My unit is a Ford V10 chassis, but the matching lens on the left side has a GM part number 16518657. I tried to google it with no results. I have photos.

Thanks for any help. Bob

The lens will have a DOT number on it.
Google "DOT xxxxxxx" xxxxxxx = number. This will identify the light and where it is used in the automotive industry. The lowest price I've found on the web is JC Whitney.

Our '06 Mandalay carries headlights from a Cadillac Escapade. I just replaced them with new headlights that have projector lamps, halos and use LEDs for the turn signals and accent lights. They really look nice!

Sorry...I don't have a picture.

2000 Pace Arrow corner lens

Ret, I tried finding the DOT number but I could not find anything other than the GM number. The DOT # may be on the back, but it's a real pain to get to it. I will have to take out the headlight ASM. before I can access the corner lens. The lens looks a lot like the corner lens on a 1995 Buick Park Ave. but the P/N doesn't match. I am in Florida for the winter so I will check around and see if I can find a vehicle with the same lens.
Thanks for the response, Bob
