Nope - the headlights are sold as a complete unit - you can't just get a new lens from the dealer. Check out or eBay and see if someone is selling headlights from a car that is being parted out - that's your best bet cost-wise.

I just baught a 1993 Buic Centry and there is headlights but no cover for them how much am I looking at to get two covers ???

I'm not sure what you mean by headlight covers. If you mean the lens that is supposed to be in front of the bulb, you need the whole headlight assembly. Check with your local junkyard. Those would go for about $20-$40 each around here(SE PA).

How do i replace the sidelight bulbs on my 1999 audi a4? do i need to take the whole headlight unit off or is there a simpler way? I can get to the wires that conect to the sidelight bulb but my fingers...

You don't need to remove the whole headlight but instead the side light bulb is normally clipped to the headlight.Some are held by a small cover which you either need to rotate it or unclipped it out.Hope this helps.

You have a switch on your console that locks the headlights up without giving them power. Use that switch to leave the up and there a a few screws that hold the plastic cover around the lights, just remove the cover and there a a couple more screws behold that cover that hold the headlight in place.. Should take about ten min to do both sides.. Any questions feel free to ask
