I have a 92 rs and i need new lenses, not the whole light, for the turn signal on the front bumper, under the headlights, what are they called, i wanted to buy a lense on ebay, since i just need the lenses, i tryed front signal lights, turn signal, and various other phrases but i cant find them, what are they "officialy" called

you can't buy just the lens, you hafta buy the whole housing. they're called "parking lights" and there's an ebay seller that has new aftermarket ones, i got a set myself and they're really nice.
here's a link...

Thanks a lot man, one question though, the ones that are on it now have what seems like a frosted lense infront of them, and you cant see through the lense to the actual light, these dont come with that? the only reason i need a lense, is becuase its cracked and some of the frost is out of the lense, i dont really need the whole assembly, just the lense but if i have to buy the whole assembly, i mite as well becuase it bothers me

Oh snap, the prez is getting angry! :lol2:

they're like that because they're clouded up from moisture getting in them, those are what they look like when the car was new.

I have a set of aftermarkets too(different manufacturer)...and they look great, but they keep fogging up... the seals where the light plugs in is fine, but they have condensation in them all the time and I cant figure out how to get rid of it...I could take them off and let them dry out again, but I dont want to bother unless I can prevent it from happening again.

you can put small holes in the bottom to let the moisture drain. i've heard of ppl doing that somewhere before.
03-13-2006, 10:49 PM
they came with holes on the bottom already...but the moisture is just sitting there, trapped between the reflector and the lense...

I hear of siliconeing all of the seams to make sure the moisture doesn't get in in the first place

Peoeple support both. Fully vented for drying out, or fully sealed to keep it dry in the first place.

so basicly, its not possable to buy just the lenses, you have to buy the whole assembly?

wile were on the subject on lights, i wanted to get a set of those HID bulbs, and was looking around ebay also for those, and found this set, what do you guys think of them, they seem pretty cheap... not sure if thats becuase they are crap or what.

check feedback.... 98% is dubious... dont use price as a deciding factor cuz custom camaro boxes sell for $200 in stores and i bought mine for $30 brand new off ebay

Wasnt really stuck on the price, i realize you get what you pay for, just wondering if they look good on camaros, and really how much of a difference do they make at night, is it worth it?
