      Leaving it as it is would cause the tail lamp to get smoked as dust n moisture (water at times of rain) will enter the light. U will have to get it replaced eventually!

      Sad to see that. How it happened? Are you parking on road side.

      I had replaced my Figo's left rear lamp cluster once. It should cost you around 1-2K or so. I am not able to recollect the exact amount as it was 2 years before.
      Make sure that the new one don't have any cracks. After replacement found that the new one had a crack on the top which got fixed with Feviquick or so.

      Get it done from Ford Service Center.

      invincible_444 : Thats bad. However, you need to get it replaced since as karan soni mentioned it would collect dust and water and that would spoil the reflector. The other thing that comes to my mind would be since the cover is gone, motorists behind you would have issues with the glare of the n@k3d bulb once you brake at night.

      Ha... Looks like you are traveling in the same path as mine.
      I had a dent in the left rear wheel arch. Got it repaired from the Service Center. While going back home, a biker came & hit the left rear lamp cluster & broke it.

      As of my knowledge it is very hard to get the accessories of these Cars outside.
      You can give a try though.
      Meanwhile check with the Service Center about the cost of the same.
