If your like me you dont like the amber in the lenses and im not taking a chance in cutting the headlight housing apart or melting it in the oven. So i've noticed people haven't found them out there but they are out there just very hard to find...these two places have them in stock last time i looked....me personally i'd buy Ricky81 's headlights he has for sale in the classifieds...i was going to but threw codes and have that damn fan clutch that needs replaced with the heat around here. hope this helps someone and keep modin

Try ordering them though. These 2 websites keep posting these for sale but the lights are illegal per the DOT and they have none in stock.

Your best bet is getting brand new headlights off ebay a store there sells brand new Headlights for Envoy for $130 shipped. these include 4 of the main bulbs which themselves will cost you $50.
It isn't really a big deal using a heat gun to pry them apart, it just takes some patience some hurt fingers and learning to cut back the heat when the plastic is melting. Oh and some muscle.
They seal right back up, applying heat and pressing them back together, no need to spend hours trying to remove the old glue etc etc etc

those ones on the first link are sweet{all chrome ones},,but 270 is kinda steep when you can use the dremel tool to separate the black housing and do it yourself....i think it took me about 45minutes to do both and 6 bucks for the epoxy to put them back together.......i can see how people would be leary about cutting your lights apart,the heat trick did absolutely zilch for me,,,i wasted 4 hours trying that method.

Yeah it is really annoying getting parts for the Envoy.
Websites constantly show things in stock but don't have them for various reasons.

Especially the Westin sport tubes, one place FINALLY took them off ebay after me blowing a gasket on them.
Even worse you order those lights they wait 4-5 days before telling you no.
I think I went through that with 2 or 3 sites before I realized I need to call these people.
Another annoying thing is quite a few websites will show all the fancy tail light replacements for the Envoy but they are Trailblazer lights. Which of course don't fit an Envoy.

I am soon to be the proud owner of the headlights that Ricky81 has in the classifieds. I purchased them and he shipped them to me on Tuesday. Should have them soon. I guess he did not have a chance to take that ad down.

when u cut them open what did you do to get the amber out? is it just an insert or did you wrap them with a vinyl or tint?

When I did my retrofit I first used a dremel and cut all around the housing. Stuck it in the oven for about 10mins at 250. In total took about an hour to open apart and that's for a set of headlights. At first I was kinda scared but it actually worked.....LOL.....once apart it took me about 2 weeks(10hrs in total) to finish the retrofit, the new set I used some lexus projectors with tsx-r lens. It's a lot of work but its well worth....BTW Wire, once you receive the headlights hit me a pm to give you details on the install.
