Does the G5 and cobalt headlight are exactly the same? for fitment on the car. I know there are differences in the reflectors or other details but I'm just wondering if cobalt headlights are a direct fit on a G5.

Thanks for your help!

yes, a direct fit

I believe the Cobalt headlights do match the g5 headlights in terms of fit. Look, however is different. The cobalt headlights typically have the turn signal area colored amber, wheres as the g5 is "chrome" with a amber bulb.

They fit exactly the same. To clarify gienteracing's post, 07's and up have amber turn-signal bulbs, so they don't have the colored lens like the 05-06's. There has also been some discussion about the GT and SS headlights being tinted, but again, that would not affect the fitment.

Thanks for the fast reply,

we are repairing a 08 G5 and the lense is tinted and no amber reflector, so that confirms it.

we got a replacement light from a 05 Pursuit but it's not tinted :( and have the amber reflector.

Thanks again!
