    Tail Lamp Assembly Shortage?

    A young lady backed into my 03 DeVille in the church parking lot back in early November, cracking the lens on the left rear tail light. I have had one on order through a local dealer since November 10, and have just been informed by my body shop that one will not be available until late March. Have been unable to find a used one in a nationwide search that isn't cracked.

    What gives?

    The left side was probably produced in Guatemala to save a few bucks. Seville headlights are the same story. Not enough demand to fire up another production run. If every one you find is cracked it sounds like that girl at your church has been busy...

    Try eBay or www.car-part.com if you haven't looked there already. And

    Dealer says GM is going to find enough parts to make one...just one, and send it out by itself. We'll see.

    Try checking with www.ledfix.com. They were sold out of Left Rear when I needed one a year and a half ago (self inflicted), but they may have some now.
