    I need new boot light lenses as mine are letting water and dirt run down the inside of them.

    I've browsed Ebay but cant find any that match.

    These are my lights....



    Its only the smaller lenses on the boot lid that I need



    Does anybody know of a website that sells them to match what I already have?

    Or does anybody know how much they will cost from the dealers?

    Well it looks like theyre going to be uber expensive given that I've just found some used ones on E-bay for £40 each!!! I might try some sort of glue / sealant first

    I'm SOOOO P#ssed off right now. WHY cant they be cheap? Theyre only a bit of plastic for christs sake! £20 a side tops and I'd be happy. I think suicide may be the only way forward

    My plan of action is.... I'm going to try the dealers in the morning and see exactly how much they want. I know it says theyre 60 odd quid on that website, but that site was way off on the service kit so I'm hoping the price for the lights is wrong too.

    If theyre more than £30 each I'm going to go to Halfords and see if its possible to get the sealant glue stuff that holds them together, if it is then I'll pull them apart, clean and re-seal.

    I'm reluctant to get them off the net because there seem to be that many different versions. Some arent crystal like mine, and some have red bits round the clear bit and stuff like that

    £53 per light from the stealers. I've ordered them. Would rather get them in person rather than off net because if the new ones start doing the same thing I can return them and create a fuss if I dont get my own way LOL
