Can anyone confirm the 8th gen Honda "Accessory" OEM fog lights are a single, sealed unit. I installed these on my 2010 EX sedan two months ago, but did not take notice at the time. My issue is I took a rock strike which damaged the grayish black surround and destroyed the lense (the light still works! :thmsup: ).

The dealership wants $192 + tax to replace it and says it is all one unit. I can live with the damage on the grayish black surround, but obviously the lens must be replaced. I guess if I have to replace the whole light assembly, perhaps someone here would use what comes out (it does work). :paranoid:

Yes, I did search DA, but did not find an exact answer. Have a nice day.

Yes, all one unit. You can remove the remaining glass and fabricate a Lexan replacement, however.

Thanks for the info. I suspected as much, but wanted to confirm. As for the Lexan replacement, do tell? I have worked with regular plexi in the past, but nothing like this I suspect.

You'll just need to make a template, cut it, and glue it in place with the bezel on the outside. I'm doing this as part of a foglight retrofit.

Plexi glass works great, the only problem I had when doing this was I didn't have clamps as the fog light is curved and the plexi glass is flat. I just got my drill,out and used four small screws in each corner with the glue. The screws are not visible with the fog lights in the bumper so that worked out for me.

Yes, that is the part that bothers me. :( I went ahead and ordered a replacement for Honda and should have it on the car soon. Thanks for the assistance.

The lexan plastic will melt from the heat of the stock 55-W bulb. Been there and done that. Lasted maybe 3 months then the lexan got grilled to a black color. Removed and ordered a new OEM housing from Honda.

Makes me glad I decided not go that direction. Thanks for the info.

Don't know what you used? Maybe something too thin? I repaired mine over a year ago and no melting or problems? Still looks great. I didn't buy a new fog light because it will just come with glass again and could break again.
