Default Headlight Replacement

I hope I'm not in the wrong forum.....if so, I am truly sorry. I need to replace the passenger side headlight on my 02 PT, its is extremely cloudy...(why only the pass side?) where's the least expensive place to buy a headlight assy? Don't need bulbs, only housing.

Everyone loves Sunny weather but I hate what the Sun's UV Rays can do to plastic.... Try Ebay tho.

Look only for OEM headlamp assemblies. dont fall for 'replacement' aftermarket parts, the fit and finish is TERRIBLE. Havent found one yet that fits nice.

That's the side that you tend to ine up with the wheels of other cars, then sand, road grit, and rocks get flung up at your PT. Notice that's the side that gets the most paint chips.

Before you go to the expense of a new headlight, try cleaning it with Meguiar's plastic cleaner --- mine were getting a little cloudy, I used the Meguiar's on 'em, and it really made a difference. Anyway, it might be worth it to find out if that's all you nee, before going the replacement route!

and welcome to the forum!

im planning on installing a replacement headlight, is it more advisable to get the whole assembly or can i buy individual parts?
