    Help needed quick - Need left and right headlamp assembly for '99 Catera



    My 1999 turkey... I mean Catera... didn't pass state inspection because the headlamp adjustors are both busted and the headlamp assemblies are jiggling around like cafeteria jello. The mechanic told me I need two complete headlamp assemblies. Another option is finding the individual adjustors and he thinks that is highly unlikely (however, I have yet to call the local Cadillac dealer to see if the adjustors are available anywhere). I have 15 days to drive around with the rejection sticker before it's illegal for me to drive the car, so I need to get the issue fixed and the car re-inspected before then.

    Does anyone know of somewhere that sells the entire assembly? I really don't have the money right now to order through a dealer and pay through the nose for the install. Thank God my father-in-law has been "mechanicing" for 40 years and could do the job in 30 minutes with the parts.

    Personally, I'd prefer to push this car into a swamp and light it on fire for all the issues it has. I bought it for $3k as an additional four-door to accomodate having our first child, and it appears I'm getting my money's worth.

    Thanks so much for any help.

    Not sure if these are still available but they would be quite a nice upgrade.

    Thanks, Southern-Hospitality. Those are really nice headlights! However, I think I'm going to go the used route. I found a used auto parts company in L.A. that'll sell and ship the complete assemblies to me for $204 total. I just hope they'll get here this weekend so my dad-in-law can pop them in. Plus, I really don't care about this car enough to put those fancy lights in
