Default '08 Astra Headlights

Looking for the complete headlight assembly ( right and left ) for an '08 Astra xr. Must be in very good to excellent conidition. Mine are yellowed on the inside. Maybe someone has a quick fix? Thanks

Default Headlights yellowed

derf, Not sure how they got yellowed? Just bought the car and parts seem to be hard to find for the Astra. A one year only import to US. Other than the headlights, this things is like new. Thanks again.

oops. You bought it used.
Apologies for dumbass question

Looks like you need

Part #13 (both L and R) on

LAMPS/FRONT

Part Numbers

GM Part # 93357457 LH
93357458 RH

You get more than just the lens for $300 each if you believe

HEADLAMP ASSY | Genuine GM | 93357457

____________

Many other parts houses have these for sale online.

Can't quite tell, but it appears the plastic front lens is removable, as there are various tabs around the edge, presumably for positioning in the headlamp opening on the vehicle. Meaning it is not encased. And I do not see a listing for a gasket or seal, which is strange.

Which is prob how crap got in there and sped up interior degradation.

Meaning you may be able to find a nice cheaper used pair and swap out just the plastic.

Also makes junkyards a viable option.
-----------
You may also need 2 mounting grommets 93171754. Not clear as some sites show it included, some show as a separate part.

Can you tell if the lenses you have look like they will come apart, and if there is at least a lower gasket?

Default Astra headlights

Thanks derf. I have found both R/L side for $274 a piece. Not good, but not bad. There has to be a very small market for Astra parts here in the States, as one year only import. EK

I guess I missed reading between the lines, meaning seeking very good to excellent does NOT include seeking new. After pricing the new ones I now know why. Technically, new meets your criteria, but neither here nor there.

Is this the case? Can you disassemble and swap just the front lens?

Seems like a highly unlikely possibility, but have you checked?
