Re: Kadjar front headlights


generally with a new model car it is usually 5 years old before pattern parts become freely available from sources other than the original manufacturer. This is due to normal wear and tear the need for replacement parts (other than service items) until several thousand cars of that model have been sold there is a very limited market to sell these parts too.

In you're case the headlight unit would not be expected to wear out in less than 5 years so why would they want to invest in the production of an item from which they would not get any sales.
Damage to the unit like in your example on a car this new would normally go through the insurance companies, which only use dealerships & genuine manufactures parts for repairs.

Looking on eBay - I do see that there is one complete headlight unit for sale. How this compares price wise to the dealer price I do not know.
