How did you install them? When I installed halo's on another car, I had to bake the headlights so I could open them up .. Then I glued the halo rings to the headlight housing itself .. If thats the case, you could just re-glue them?

Hmm.. well maybe you can still fix them the same way.. For mine, I ended up baking them in the oven at 250 degree's for about 10 minutes.. this allowed the sealant to warm up so that you can separate the clear plastic away from the housing .. This will give you access to the halo's .. Post up a close up shot of the housing so I know what you're referring to

you could try Ebay(warning: you get what you pay for), or you could try an aftermarket lighting shop(most aftermarket audio/performance shops sell lighting), or you could go a distant route, and google the sites(type in "Aftermarket Halo Ring lights for automotive", and go from there)
