      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.

      Sad to see it. I understand that it will cost some amount but unlikely that we can get this stuff in after market shops.

      Leaving this open will not be a good idea because:

      It may blind motorists behind your car.
      Dust, water etc eventually will enter into this, which can further damage the electrical fittings and other things.

      Best is to visit a FASS in Delhi, we trust that they have genuine parts with them. I do not think it will be too expensive, should be between 500 to 1000.

      Did you change only cover or rest of the parts too (i.e. bulb etc.) in the tale light? Should not be that expensive, it is just a cover.

      It comes as a one piece(the entire tail lamp cluster) with the bulbs inside it.
