I just did it for a friend with a TL-S, my friend keeps getting hit with rocks on his lenses. I took a look at the assembly and its easy to replace just remove the metal housing aroung the lense(you'll see that the glass is held in by silicone)just remove all the busted glass get a piece of plexi-glass(should be stronger)cut to fit(with a rotory tool) refit with silicone, let set and your back in business(screw those bastards that want $170+ for a new lense)
P.S. my friend had expels on his lights too!!!

Too much hassle, I would just leave it.

Dang - if that happens to your FOGS all the time, what does your hood / headlights look like? :eek:

I did that the first time it broke... the 2nd time I just bought a new one. :)

Now a 3rd is broken... I dun give a crap anymore. Headlights are
much stronger than the fogs... probably cause the fogs get so
dang hot.

My left foglight is cracked too, and I sealed it with heavy-duty outdoor silicone and it hasn't leaked yet.

Foglights get hammered so much because they're so close to the ground.

Acura actually sells just the lens for $40 apiece instead of the $170+ for the entire assembly (you can get it on acp.com) but they are on a horrendous national backorder. I'm still waiting to see if I can get my hands on one, and it's been about 7 months now.

I agree with TLStyling, if you really have to change out the lens, get a piece of high density plexiglass and cut to size. You'll never know the difference.
