    I'm looking for the lens right above the fog light. What is it called? I can't find them on the web. One of mine is cracked and full of water. I'm going to put real fog lights in it and I want to replace this lens at the same time. Not going to pay the stealership for the part either.

    BTW...What the heck is it for? Mine doesn't have any lights in it, but looks like it should/could.

    That's the turn signal. It should have an amber 7440A bulb in it.

    Wow, I feel like a dork. That should have been pretty obvious. Thanks for the help. I just checked, and the signal still works and the thing is half full of water!
