    Headlight question

    I somehow have a small crack in my headlight lens. It sucks because it let moisture in and it fogs up on some days. I was just living with it for the time being but now my HID which is stock went out in that light. I am wondering if it has anything to do with the moisture in the lens. Also I thought that they were suppose to last a long time, so why is it out? It is an 04 with 63,000 miles on it. And finally my third question is it worth just having the dealer do it or is it possible to get to the back of the light without taking the entire car apart.

    Thanks
    Scott Osgood

    I would imagine that the moisture def. would cause the light to go out. Replace the headlight.

    Thats what I was afraid of. The dealer wants $316 for the bulb and $944 for the light. Any good source out there that I could get them cheaper from?

    I would check ebay for the light housing, and maybe sharp or someone for the bulb. I really don't know a whole lot about HID but $316 still seems pretty high to me.
