    Unhappy Zafira rear lights - advice needed please!

    My daughter had a slight accident this evening in her 2005 Zafira 1.9 Diesel (it's the second body style - B series?) and smashed the clear plastic cover over the driver's side rear light cluster. The light fitting underneath is undamaged.

    Q1. Does she need to replace the whole light fitting or is it possible to replace just the cover?

    Q2. Where's the best place to get the necessary parts and can anyone give me an idea of what they're likely to cost?

    I'm assuming that replacement is a straightforward job?

    I'd appreciate some guidance on this.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    Hi, to answer your questions.....

    1- It is a legal requirement to replace rear damaged lights as not to dazzle other road users also is a M.O.T Failure.

    2- You will have to replace the whole of the reat light/cluster. These are available from most motor dealer/parts shops or best is prob ebay!!!

    hope this helps, thanks

    Thanks, Guys!

    I've ordered one from eBay. The local Vauxhall dealer wanted £78 (gulp!) so I've saved her at least £20.
