    Default [Advice Needed] Vitz 2011 Backlight Damaged

    Hey guys,

    Got my backlight broken by a stupid speedy motorcyclist.

    Should I leave it as it is or should I replace the glass (just the glass), is that even possible (or will I have to replace the whole unit) and where can I get it from (original one).

    Will appreciate your suggestions.

    Please consider that since your light has cracked, dust and water will now seep through the crack and get inside the light. Over time your light will become dark and start to look dirty.

    Changing the cover isn't an option, the only option is to change the entire light assembly. You can get one from the used parts market. It will be expensive but that's what you have to pay for maintaining a JDM car.

    Also thank Allah that your loss is very small...it could have been much worse... this is a small sadqa which saved you from greater loss. May Allah always keep us all safe.

    for the time being put elfy on the cracks to stop dust from going in, Later change it a new light would cost anywhere between 8-12 thousand. Another cheaper option is to replace its glass but that will look cheap after a few months
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.
