Had to replace a low beam bulb today and found mine are cracked as well. Actually had to replace 2 bulbs so the whiteness of the light would match.

Tagging on to the thread as it seems the most appropriate. Anyone tried the following options yet?

1) Plastex - seems to be a moldable putty like plastic that hardens and then can be machined. Like with a Dremel tool
2) Hot glue gun - apparently this will bond and hardens but with a bit of flexibility. I have 7mm black glue gun sticks and you create a 'form'. The form should have some vaseline on it so the glue does not stick. Going to give that a try.

Finally got it done and pretty pleased with the results. Blue tack covered with alum foil and vaseline acts as form work for the post. Put black hot glue on and don't be shy. Let it dry and harden completely then use a hobby knife to trim. Finally a light sanding and there ya go. View attachment 1 Rear-view mirror Automotive lighting Automotive mirror Vehicle Car
