Hi

The glass on the left headlight on me Grand Espace JE from 01.2002 is damaged. I think it was hit by a stone and part of the glass separated and is stuck inside the lamp  Angry

Is it possible to buy new or used glass only (complete xenon lamps are expensive!).

Any ideas for sellers are welcome.
I live in Denmark, but worldwide sellers are also a possibility.

Thanks.

If the glass is still in one piece with just a pin hole on the outside, you might find a trick I have used will stop wter getting in until you find a replacement.
Clean the outside properly then cut a piece of the wide sellotape, stick it over the damaged area then coat it ith a clear polyurethane varnish or clear nail varnish. It stops water getting into the reflector and lasts quite a long time.

Thanks for the trick renaultsan  Smiley

Just for information:
I asked my renault dealer for a original sparepart and got a price... 10554 DKK (~1400 EUR)  Huh Undecided

Will find a used part for sure  Cheesy

Another question.
Does anybody know the name of the cover for the sprincler part that pops out for cleaning the headlight ?
That cover fell of on my car and I need to locate a replacement for that...

Just some follow-up information.

Got a used headlight from ebay, it looked very fine and I think it was unused, no signs of it being mounted, might have been on storage for many years.

Front grill needs to be removed, but really not a big job. Easier than expected.
But some of the bolts had to be cut/drilled out and replaced because of rust  Undecided.
