I have a 2002 Mercury Cougar with a broken headlight cover and was told by the dealership that I would have to get an entire new assembly. I have been looking for about 8 months and I have to tell you, they are almost impossible to find and very expensive. $225-$325 if you can find one. Good luck!

Sealed unit, you have to replace the headlight, eBay has them often.
