Default A tragedy, I know. Where to find replacement parts?

I'm not proud of it, but at mile 1777 I backed into another car.
It was, no less embarrassing, a big frigging truck that didn't even seem to notice. (NOT A SCRATCH, GGGGRRRR!)

So now that I've managed to stop crying and promising my car I'll never, ever hurt her again, I need to find a new tail light. I would prefer to by the part and install myself. I've done some searching, and can't seem to find any 2007 parts other than add-ons and accessories.

Anyone have a link lying around that could be of help?

Thanks a bundle,
k

PS Yes, before anyone asks, I will be reteaching myself how to judge distance through a fish-eye lens...

Did you know that the top glove box is a perfect fit for an extra long cheese coney?

Sorry to hear about your accident. You can always go to the parts department of any Toyota dealer and get the part you need. I don't think you will be able to find it for less otherwise, unless you get one from a salvage vehicle.

Look on Ebay. 04 and 05 same. I think 06 and 07 are same but not sure. I have used this method several times

06/07 is different: has clear lens for brake lamps. I am sure you'd want the left and right to match.

Hi, Dan,

I think firepro meant that the '04/'05 were the same (interchangable with each other), and that he thought the '06/'07 were the same as each other [but not sure if the '06 was interchangable with the '07 (which the original poster is look'g for)]. Since he did separate them, I think he knows the '04/'05 lights are different from the '06/'07 lights. Just my take on it.

But, Dan, you did good to warn the OP when look'g for a replacement to get one with the clear lens all the way to the top.
