$65USD for each bulb??? Man...you got ripped off big time. You can buy a pair of those exact bulbs for $55.57 on Amazon Canada... or about $41USD.

$34 (pair) on Amazon USA. Probably even cheaper from his supplier (AutoZone/Napa) That guy hosed you.

Joe/Oscarvan,
Thanks for the info. I will be calling Dylan's tomorrow. Was just charged shipping on a slide motor. There was no question this was factory warranty.

Harvey

And I thought it was just me...

Hey Phil, what do you think??

Hey Harvey, I will send you a PM with my cell, give me a call we will all compare notes. Had a feeling it was not just me.

Now with two being charged it seems like a I scam. I weak scam and odd that they would risk their reputation for shipping charges.

So their gonna make good on the shipping since it was manufacturer warranty which is really good?? That's gonna suck though when your manufacturers warranty expires and you're possibly on an extended warranty that you paid extra money for and still have to pay more. Does that really make any sense?

Just had my headlight replaced by FR due to condensation. 2016 38A. There is no way to fix the problem. You need a replacement headlamp. Make sure they aim it correctly, as they usually don't.

Temporary fix:

I drilled holes in mine. 1/4 Inch holes, a couple on top and 3 or 4 on the bottom. Cleared the light so I could use it until the replacement work was done.

Make sure you get approval for a new one from FR before drilling, if it is a warranty issue. Call Mitch Wirt.

Just had these replaced on my brand new XL 40A. Seems strange that they would go bad so fast.
