Uh-oh...This isn't good. Both of these broke (one in picture probably usable, but only marginally) when I was removing my headlights to get to the evaporative canister today. Now, if they didn't have clips on the side that clips them into the headlight housing, I might understand. However, they are obviously prone to breakage on removal, and are an individual part, but are unavailable as such. Unless somebody out there has found them available somewhere? Certainly the people who make the headlights are getting them made. And it's almost as certain that they won't part with them either, right? Not unless they're attached to a new headlight lens.
Working on modern cars, with all of the plastic, is getting be like dry plumbing. Anyone who has done plumbing, knows that you can always plan on replacing parts that you remove, and break, getting to the problem part, as well as the problem part, along with every seal within cursing distance. In getting to my evaporative canister to fix a vacuum leak, I broke virtually every plastic fastener that held the fender liner to the bumper fascia, as well as the lower clips for the fascia. Then both of the sliding adjuster pieces broke in the headlight lenses. I shudder to think to myself, "what else?". At least I know I fixed the leak before I put it all back together. On that level it beats plumbing.
