I knocked one of my '18 TourX's eyes out. There's nothing on a parts shelf in America that I can find to get the car back on the road.

Anyone have a lead or suggestion? Thanks

I was going to say that replacing the headlight module requires removing the front bumper assembly--but it looks like you need that part as well (and a few others). Were you going to try & fix it yourself or just let a body shop deal with it?

If I recall, they’re gonna have a core charge. I read something about that a while back. It seems even broken, they’ve got donor parts left in them

I wandered over to Rock Auto only to see that the things you were looking for said "Out of Stock" - of course they were never probably in stock given the history of the TourX.

It's at my buddies shop now, everything else wasn't too hard to get a hold of. The bumper cover was only a week wait, but that lamp assembly is like hens teeth.

Salvage is going to be probably only option, but then that may be a hurry up and wait. The TourX do show up but low volume sales and how the damage occurred is going to be the next challenge, so it may just may be checking every day. Not sure if anything may be available or if fitment is correct but checking the EU market might be useful.

I find it amazing that they don't have headlights available. It's not the first time I've heard this same story.

At $1000+ a unit, you know they are profiting HUGE on every sale. It's a common replacement part in an auto accident so it's not like it's a high risk investment for Buick to keep more in stock.

Do they ship them to Germany from China for the factory build, or are they OEM made in Germany for the car?

Have had bad expieriences with Chinese knockoff stuff before.

Thanks

Tried them all, no dice, the first one was a Chinese aftermarket deal. Cherry said they had one over the phone but when my shop called them it either wasn't the right one or wasn't actually in their warehouse.

I got another buddy that runs a shop in St. Louis, he's checking for salvage yard stuff now also.

Thanks for that find! I guess I should have said Preferred. Need halogen and that one's a LED.

If I have to wait too much long for one to show up I would mis-matched the headlights so I'll keep that in the maybe file.
