Do you have free glass coverage on your insurance???

I would look into it...

I've cracked both of my lens through the years on my Subie. (95 impreza LX)

You have to replace the whole stink'n unit. (It real easy to do though, just remove 1 screw from the the side light; pop it out; then remove 3 screws from the light unit and the whole thing pops out.)

It costs about $175-$195 for the light assembly through the dealer.

Go to http://www.subaruparts.com/ for a replacement. They'll be $118.76 and some change each. Part numbers 84001FA451 and 84001FA441 (dunno which is left and right). Edit: Oh, and they're $164 to $189 from the dealer.

Trunkmonkey is here! There is no cone...

If you have a truck number, get the trucking company to pay for it. In AZ, if the load is not covered, the company has to pay for any damage.

You are lucky!
I had one headlight and my A/C condenser...the radiator looking thing infront of the radiator....taken out by rocks, which I did not even noticed at the time it happened.

No warranty,...of course! I mean you would not expect subaru to pay for a cracked winshield either, right!

So it went through insurance, cause the fukn condenser was like 900 bux canadian, installed!!
The 500 dollar deductible still sucked though!

Have a Nice Day? Oh man, someone, please help :)

2 days after i got my car, i was driving on our local road and a quarry truck scattering rocks everywhere was speeding in the opposite direction. Of course one of the rocks landed somewhere on my car, and although it sounded like a windshield it wasnt. Than 2 weeks later, yesterday night, I noticed a something inside my headlight, but than under a closer inspection, turns out its a huge crack with a BB sized hole in the middle. So thats where that rock landed. This type of CRAP is not covered by the warrantee, this car has 600 miles on it, these bastards. What should I do? Any good OEM places online? With good prices? I am fairly new to Scoobarus. Also, would I have to change the entire headlight, or maybe be able to replace the glass part itself? I havent looked closely yet, but oh well. Thanks in advance for your help. This is horrible hehe. Brand new car. Thanks!

hey, that is what insurance is for
under comprehensive coverage or other than collision insurance. See what your Deductibles are and then and see what it would take to fix it! I would bet you have 500 ded. and the light will cost about 100 bux or so. My assumption...I am an insurance agent so i know insurance covers it!!! Good luck

Make sure to check out www.qsubaru.homepage.com. Her prices are usually better, and no shipping charges, so the difference is bigger than you think.

The headlight just screws on with several clamps and such. You may want to remove the old one first to make sure nothing else broke.

Comprehensive insurance covers it, but it'll be less than your deductable probably. A head light should cost around $120 or so.

See if your area has a bylaw saying that loads on trucks like that must be covered. If so, go talk to the trucking company.

Another option is to try and locate the glass via a junkyard. There have been a few totalled Imprezas with good headlights.
