You can also grab a decent pair of clear corner lenses for both front and rear at
http://www.carxccessory.com for $45.
I don't think they make them for the rear, for us, but if they did, it would make the back look like ass.

Beware of ProCarParts!

These guys are the biggest A-holes around. I got a set of clears for my '96 from them off of eBay.

One side constantly had condensation in it. I emailed them back after a week or so and they suggested cleaning the seal between the bulb and the socket. Did that and had no better luck.

By the way, it took over 2 weeks for them to respond to my original email.

I went back and forth with them for like 6 weeks. I sent them a photo of what it was doing and then they said they didn't get the attachment (after a week again).

In the mean time I brought the corner inside, filled it with water from the sink and noticed that the seam of the side reflector and the main part was where it was leaking! So it's clearly (no pun intended) a defect.

Since this whole fiasco they now REFUSE :mad: to take it back because "now it's four months old and we can't accept it back"

WTF??? They took their sweet time responding to me and now I'm stuck with these crappy clear corners!

Their customer service is for shite.

Here's a thread of the emails going back and forth. Not all are there, but you'll get the idea:

We apologize to said that's return is not acceptable, due to the parts has
been out for a period of time.
thanks,
cs

This is not satisfactory. Here is a copy of the email I sent back in April.
I had reported a problem well within your 4 month warranty period (I stated
that this has been happening to the lenses since I originally received
them.) The only reason it's been over four months is because you haven't
been prompt in replying to my messages.

Please issue me a return authorization number so this can be settled.

Thank you.

Matt Fredendall has sent the following comment to your from your web site:

I purchased a set of clear corner lenses for my '96 Thunderbird from your
company from eBay a couple of months ago. About 3 weeks after I had them I
emailed you via your ebay account to inform you that one was continually
filling up with condensation and I have yet to hear a response. I pulled the
lense and dried it out and made sure the seal from the bulb to the lense was
ok and it continues to happen. Is there anything we can do to resolve this?
I would appreciate a response.

Has anyone else had luck with other brands/distributors or clear corners for 96-97?
