Default Tail Light Assembly

Just thought Id pass this info on to those of us that have not had the misfortune of replacing a rear tail light assembly. Wife backed into the left taillight and broke about a 3 inch long by 1/2 inch piece and left a 4 inch crack in the lens. Went to my dealer to order the tailight ... $326 + tax .. OUCH! I said "what?" Looked for after market replacements. I recall seeing on one of the threads a website called KIAPARTS.COM .. the tail light assembly there showed up as costing $132 US .. said "YES!!" .. went to order it ... NO SHIPPING to CANADA.... I went to the body shop my dealer uses and they tried locating one at several wreckers .. no luck .. so beware this is a costly part!

hey
it should not be so bad. It could always be worse...

Do not worry, I scratched and cracked front bumper.

Anyway,
go to these retailers:
Parts.com - For every part of your life
https://www.kiaparts.com/
http://www.kiacarparts.net/partlocat...?siteid=214819

I know you visited the kiaparts already, but it looks like they accept Canadian address; therefore, the should accept shipping to Canada (billing adress=shipping address)

If not - check the other two retailers.

good luck

BTW. Front bumper, cover only is around 200 +S/H, + paint (it's another 200 or so...)

Thanks PLP .. I will try the other 2 sites , as I went through the whole order process on kiaparts.com with billing address = shipping address and when I went to submit , it boldly stated that the site did not ship to Canada, that I must provide a US destination.
Thanks for teh info and I will let you know how I fair ..
