Kountry Star headlights

My in-laws have a 2005 country star dp and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what vehicle the headlights come from. I know it is probably on here some where so if someone can direct me that would be great. Thank you.

I think it is the 2001 Taurus. Get the numbers off the glass and google.

All lighting interior and exterior can be found in the lighting section of QT's # 3.
Both in Problem Solvers and the second section of QT's # 3 Lighting Section.

Ditto my 08 . Little tip, if oxidized, try bug spray , like Off, spray, rub in, then buff off. It really works!

Blue magic makes a headlight cleaner/polish that works very well. No sanding or mechanical buffing is required. I you lenses are cloudy it won't work but if they're yellowed it will make them like new. You can find it at PEP Boys, AutoZone, Wal-Mart and O'Reillys. I do mine once a year and they look like brand new.

They are the same as those used on my KS gasser. Look for lights from a 99-04 Oldsmobile Alero. They are plentiful on ebay and Amazon. As others have suggested, if its a clouding issue, you might try restoring them with one of the many kits available for that purpose. If you go that route, I suggest looking for a kit that comes with a clear coat to apply after the polishing is completed.

I didn't see an answer in QT#3. Looks like the attached image? Google says those are Ford Taurus, as suggested above.

Oops. I stand corrected. I thought they changed the diesel the same year they changed the gasser. They actually changed the DP in 2005.
