    Is there a way to replace just the lens on my headlight?? It seems as though there are a couple small cracks in the lens which is allowing condensation to get into the headlight when it rains or anything. The cracks seem very minimal and my taco has some sweet HID lights so i'd like to not have to replace the entire assembly. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Buy aftermarket housings. Heat them up and separate them from the lenses.

    Hear your housings and separate them from the lenses.

    Reheat and swap lenses.

    Sounds like you may have some cheap aftermarket headlights. Most are known to leak and fog up. Get new lights or try sealing all the seams with RTV or silicone

    Pretty much.

    Nobody sells just the lens, so there isn't a cheap fix.

    Cheap headlights usually start to have issues with a clear coating that starts to peel on the inside of the lens, and starts near the top part........ Look for used oems
