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, hereís 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.

Cool Truck light 18 (TL18)

O well for what it is!

The lights on our rig is 4.5 x 1.625. The bolt hole mounting is 4".

4 yellow and 2 red. Numbers on lens: TL10 SAE AP2-80

This is all I can do

Do a search with this number:
Truck-Lite 18 Series Rectangular Marker and Clearance Lamp Kit - Yellow - 18300Y

The red ones will be 18300R.

Found it finally, thanks all

Finally just ordered a replacement for the side light, should have looked up the product # on the other one that is still good - duh.


Thanks

Glad you found it. Finding parts for our classics can be frustrating at times!

Are you talking about side rear marker turns? The main ones are Grote 9074 in Amber. My rear sides arenít signal, they are red AP2-80 lenses. Can you send a picture?
