View Full Version : Tail light question......

Greetings everyone,

I need some help, I am a proud owner of an 2007 STS. Recently I cracked my tail light on the passenger side and I'm having a real hard time finding a replacement. I searched junkyards, eBay and Craigslist and I cannot find one with the model year of 2007. The dealer is way too expensive, all I can find for sale on-line in 2008-2011. My question is if I can purchase a 2008 or 2009 tail light and use it for replacement on my 2007 STS. I want to know if it will fit and be compatible before I buy it. Ive called a few dealers and I'm getting different answers, some say it will fit and other say it wont and I have called junk yards just to get hung up on. If someone could give me a real solid answer so I don't have to risk it would be a great help.

Thank you in advance

If you have a passenger side tail light I would be extremely interested in purchasing it. Do you want to sell just one, if so then how much?

Are you sure, I think I will buy one off Craigslist tomorrow. It's a 2008 and I really hope it will fit on the 2007

They are all the same except export and gm accessory lamps.

Domestic 05-07 are a different part number than 08-11, but I'm not sure what the difference really is. In the export version, 05-11 are all the same. I've installed a set of these in my car (2008) and everything works great. This suggests no significant difference. I'd concur that they should work.

Ive changed an 07 tail light to an 08 tail light and everything fits perfectly but i noticed the 08 tail light has a brighter red tint. So if you do purchase an 08 tail light; you will have one tail light slighty darker( 07). You will need to buy a set to match nicely.
