2008 Infiniti ex35 Journey - lowest cost replacement parts

Postby DodgeGrady » Thu Jun 24, 2021 11:31 am

Hey all!
Where are the best places to get low cost replacement parts for my
08 EX35 Journey? I'm having a heck of a time finding anything online. As an example of an item that I need let's start with the headlight assemblies
(Left & Right). I am having an incredibly difficult time locating a part number to use as reference as well as finding assemblies that won't break the bank. My EX35 has halogen lights. Can anyone help me with finding parts suppliers please? Even after polishing them they are yellowing again. At night I can barely see ahead of me on the road so I always turn the fog lights on too. That helps a little, but I have realized that I just have to bite the bullet and get new assemblies.
Thank you,
Jeremy

Unfortunately there just isn't a big supply of headlights for these cars as the production numbers weren't as high as the G35's and G37's. So you're left with either buying new ones from the various Infiniti parts sites, or used ones on eBay. Every now and then you can spot new old stock on eBay if you're watchful, but it's kinda rare. I think many parts sellers realize the high value of headlight housings and hold out for top dollar. At least you have halogens that cost a lot less than the factory HID housings ($1,500+ each!!)

BTW - after polishing, you can try recoating them with clear coat so as to retain the clear lens for longer. There are lots of videos on YT on how to do it.
