Check your dealer. I got my drivers side and rear pass one from my local Chevy dealer. Those lens are interchangeable. They had in stock.

It is one piece. Your lense must have broke off. Here is one, price is high. I found one in a junk yard for $1.

I wouldn't pay dealer prices for something like that. My driver's side one had the lens broken off - I found a replacement on Ebay for $10 shipped, IIRC. No yards near me :(

I've had this happen to both front doors

I glued them back but the passenger side fell off again does the whole housing have to be replaced or should I just try gluing it back?

I should have mentioned I paid $6 each for mine at the dealer. Pulling one from the salvage yard will be possible brittle. The tabs brake on these very easy. $6 at dealer was a good price in my opinion. Plus I have a dealer down the street. Junk yard not so much.

I paid $6 each at my local Chevy dealer. Still less than the $10 you paid.

I know the service manager at my local dealer so I don't know but I may get it cheaper then $6 I may call and ask tomorrow as it beats glueing the old one back

I'll admit, I didn't even call the dealer. GMPD is showing that part at just under $21, and (in my experience) dealer parts out here tend to be marked up 25 - 50% over the prices listed in the online parts catalogs anyway. If this one falls apart, maybe I'll ask them about the price for a replacement.

Sometimes it's not a bad thing to buy from the dealer. Also helps to have friends who work at one. My buddy is a ford mechanic and does all my service work on my f350 diesel. Gets me all my parts at cost. Saves my ass a lot of cash. Lol. Ill always check dealer first. Then do my online searches and go from there.
