    I've searched the Dorman catalog, checked Rock Auto (to name a couple) and have come up empty.
    Searching here yielded one non-result.
    Anyone have a PN or source for the headlight adjusting screws? (03 Tahoe). I see one of mine has had the hose clamp treatment and couple more let go the other day. But trying to find them doesn't seem easy. Either that I'm not using the correct description.
    Thanks in advance.

    Part numbers!
    Excellent. And thanks. I'll work with those and see what I can dig up. I hadn't thought about OEM parts but it looks like that might be the only way to go.

    Junkyard. Even if the lenses are no good, all you need are the screws. Should be dirt cheap.

    you probably wont find any aftermarket ones out there, I used to pull the oem ones out of headlights at the junkyard and use them in aftermarket housings because the aftermarket ones in those housings are stripped plastic junk from the get-go

    It stands to reason that they have to be out there somewhere.
    I've yet to search my GM catalog but I will.


    True enough. The junkyard used to supply a lot parts for me. Haven't been lately as where I live now isn't so junkyard friendly. Almost a couple million people in my metropolitan area and one pick and pull?! And it's a 90 minute drive on top of that. I prefer on-line shopping...

    Yeah. I haven't found any aftermarket representation but I've only started to dig. I figured posting here would give me the best insight into what's out there.
    So far it has with the "auto recyclers" probably having the best chance of offering something.

    I'll give it real go on the weekend.
