    HELP!! Cts 3.6l DI 08 Headlight Strip is out??

    I recently got some condensantion inside my headlight, and last night I noticed my Parking light strip was not working. Everything else works fine inside the head light.

    could I replace the light bulb or do I have to replace the entire headlight? and if so theres a guy selling one on CL but how do I know if his light is HID like mine? he doesn't know, is there a difference between the regular 3.6l and the 3.6l DI as far as headlights? will the serial # on the headlights reveal if they came from a regular 3.6 or a 3.6 DI?

    Thanks

    If he has RPO code TT6, then he has HID headlights. (RPO is regular production order) The RPO code label is located on the backside of the spare tire cover. Also the HID bulb has a big metal square box on the back of the "bulb".

    big metal square box, similar to ballasts ? the guy will send me picture of the back. Ill post them up and maybe we will be able to tell.. The reason why I want to buy them is because my passenger headlight side stripe, tube or parking light whatever its called is not working anymore. everything else works.

    If I remember correctly ONLY the HID model headlights had the LED strip. The non HID headlights had two reflectors stacked on-top of each other. One for high beam and the other for low. The HID model only had one projector at the bottom and two rectangular reflectors above it. One for turn signal and the other for DRL.
