Replacement Spoiler Light

Hello again to everyone.
Anyone have an idea of where I can buy a replacement light for my daughter's rear spoiler ? Her car is a 1991 Honda Accord, 2 door. I've checked the junk yards around here and they either don't have a spoiler like hers, don't have a replacement light that will fit hers, or they won't sell the light without the spoiler too. BTW they want way too much for the spoiler AND the light, usually around $100.00. Thanks guys, I appreciate the help as always ! 4u2

Most likely an aftermarket spoiler. You need to identify who manufactured the spoiler and contact them for a replacement.

Maybe look under for a name or some type of markings?

Hey toyotaman,
I hope this helps. I believe it's supposed to be an OEM Spoiler, came off another Honda Accord. I took the light out of the spoiler, has 2 screws that hold it in there, and read what was on the light part. This is what it says exactly, "Stanley- 050-3208".
Measured the light while I had it out, just in case I needed the info, and the light is 16 3/4" long, 1 1/8" tall, and 2 5/8" wide.
Searched online and asked at the junkyards asking about replacement "stanley lights", can't find any or same info as in my first post. Thanks for the help ! 4u2

If it's OEM you should be able to get it at Honda.

Before you buy a light have you checked for power and ground at the light with the brake pedal depressed?The reason I ask is the wires flex every time the trunk is opened or closed and may be broken.I also think your light is a LED module from the description you gave.So it will not likely be cheap.

davo,
"Before you buy a light have you checked for power and ground at the light with the brake pedal depressed?The reason I ask is the wires flex every time the trunk is opened or closed and may be broken."
*Yes, checked and got power coming to it. *

*Also, while I'm thinking about it. I brought the car with me to the Honda place close to where I live and asked them what they thought the problem might be, the tech that I talked to said the spoiler light HAD to be wired up to the third brake light ( in the back window) and wired up no other way, for it to work. Since he also told me that he had been there for over 13 years I figured he must know what he was talking about. So I wired the spoiler light straight up to the third brake light, and it still didn't work. *

"I also think your light is a LED module from the description you gave.So it will not likely be cheap."
*From what little I can find out, you're right, it is a LED module, but I still can't seem to find one. * Figures, doesn't it ?

toyotaman,
"If it's OEM you should be able to get it at Honda. "
*While I was at the Honda place, I asked them if I could get a replacement from them. They told me their books didn't go back to a 1991 anymore, so they couldn't order one.
Thanks again guys. 4u2

If it has a high mount stop lamp in the rear window I would be losing the spoiler and sealing the holes in the trunk.Do you need this for a state inspection or a safety concern for your daughter?

Find a Honda Dealer who wants to bothered to help you or still has the books to look it up. Sometimes they can call their rep to inquire about a part they no longer have info about.

toyotaman,
Will do, thanks for letting me know that they still could find info on the parts if they really wanted to.

davo,
"If it has a high mount stop lamp in the rear window I would be losing the spoiler and sealing the holes in the trunk. "
Yes it does.
"Do you need this for a state inspection or a safety concern for your daughter? "
Want the light in the spoiler to work more for safety than anything else. She asked for a spoiler for her car as a graduation present. She wanted to help the car look a little more "sporty", I guess.
Thanks again everyone. 4u2
