Default Any have a headlamp bulb retainer for 01-03? Part needed ASAP

Dealer doesn't sell them, NAPA, Autozone, PepBoys don't have any universal part, and three junkyards not one Subaru Impreza...

I need one little black plastic retainer that holds headlamp bulb to the headlight assembly on any USMarket bug-eye 01-03 Impreza. It's the part you turn a quarter turn, to release the headlight bulb from the headlamp assembly. It's about 1.5" dia and about 1.5" tall. I bet it's the same for other 900X series headlamps, but I've not found one.

The part that a local dealer brought up is a rubber dust shield assembly. It arrived today and is notheing but the rubber donut thingy. I was told to check the junkyards...

Please email me bonjo2@charter.net if you have one or have access to a recent wreck. I already got pulled over for a headlight being out. Lucky for me the part on order story saved me a $35 ticket.

Thanks

84953FE100 is the part I believe you are looking for- solid plastic cover that needs a 1/4 turn to access the main headlamp bulb. Nobody's going to have it in stock- we've sold several sets here at the dealership and I don't stock them as it's few and far between that we sell them.

Edit: There's only 2 left in the country (in NJ) so you had better order them from somebody quickly . Other than that, these two dealerships are showing them:

NORTH COAST SUBARU AUTO
GLEN COVE,NY 516-676-3676 16-DEC-04 208 mile

TACOMA SUBARU
TACOMA,WA 253-473-6200 21-DEC-04 2749 mile

Note that Tacoma Subaru = Subaruparts.com

Thanks. But that's the part number I have, $9.95, and it's only the rubber dust seal. I got my order in a couple days ago and it arrived this afternoon.

When I get home I'll try and se if the item is included with the lighting wire loom?

Again, thanks for the info. We thought the same thing for it's the only part number for the rear portion.

Brian,

I appreciate your help and am now a bit more confused. I'll head to the dealer tomorrow. I ordered 84953A and they told me is wasn't a complete part number and they added the FE100. But looking at the actual unopened part it show's 010 and is a cheap rubber donut. Who know's, maybe its the 100 you suggested in the first place?

It's one or the other, that's for certain . The parts book I have makes the photo clear, but not the final part number.
