1988 325 exterior turn signal lights

I've been searching for days to no avail for two exterior turn signal lens and housing. I have tried Airstream dealers, Airstream, AS salvage yards, eBay, Inland RV, and on, but no luck.


The front turn signal is 7" by 2 1/2", the back side is 4 1/2" by 1 3/4".



I find it hard to believe that these simply do not seem to exist. Did AS simply have one year of turn signals sizes that were never replicated?


Help!


Please.


Robert

I believe they are GM# 916558 and do come up on eBay regularly, but there are also very similar ones that folks are used as alternatives.

I had to get mine on eBay from Mexico, took about 8 weeks, but I think it's the only way to get them new

Thanks

Thanks everyone, it does look like I have found the front turn signal with your help. Not 100% sure since no one seems to list the size, but it does look promising.



However, the back side turn signal is still a black hole. Inland RV looked, but nothing, e-trailer, nothing. Every vintage and salvage place I have looked at - nothing.



I really can not believe this is so difficult.

From your measurements, it sounds like you are looking for a rear marker light/running light, not a turn signal lens. There is a thread or two here about marker lights, here’s one: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f311...ts-106342.html

Impossible?

The light is a side lens, rear, red, used as both a side and side turn signal light. It is simply 4 1/2 W by 1 3/4 T. Any pictures are not going to change that or make it in any way easier to find it's replacement.

A picture without the dimensions is worthless. The dimensions are priceless.

I found my replacements at NAPA ten years ago. They all have LED lights in them now.
