I have a Stelvio Sport Ti 2018 with a cracked rear reflector. I easily purchased a new one from a dealer for around $16 but cannot seem to learn how I can remove the current cracked reflector to install the new one. I have asked the dealer parts department and checked for a body parts installation guide online without luck.

Anyone know the trick to remove existing reflector? I thought about just enlarging the crack and prying but I am a bit worried the new one might not fit or is not correct. It matches the look of existing reflector :|but the part is from Maserati not Alfa Romeo and I am thinking the new reflector may have a difference in the method that is used to insert into the same area if that makes any sense to you.

If anyone knows I would appreciate your imput!

If so, not going to pry them off myself, but look at the back of the replacements you have...do they have clips or are they smooth.

If smooth, those suckers are glued on (my guess), so pry them off, clean up the residues...like perfect clean, no glue residue or unevenness....then glue the new ones on.

Hey Norm -

Did you ever figure this out? I have the same issue. Need to order the part at my dealer first, but then I'll have to install myself. Neighbor's kid hit a ball into the right rear of my car, and it cracked the right reflector and also the rear tow eye cap that's just underneath.

Any tips are greatly appreciated!

Just noticed half of my rear right reflector has broken off. Do you know the part number to get a replacement or where online I can find one? Our Nearest dealership is 2 hours away. Thanks

here’s my receipt - The top line is for a right rear reflector. I had to order from my dealership and pick it up, but you might be able to see if you can order and pay through your dealership and have them ship it to you.

Just replaced Left/Driver's side rear bumper reflector on my 2018 Ti Sport.

Part Number if anyone needs it is 68379487-AA

Cost at my dealer was $20.95.

2 clips hold it from the inside once you release those the reflector pops out. You could 1) remove the lower undercarriage bumper trim pieces and reach up and probably release the clips, 2) remove the whole bumper or 3) "possibly" as brittle as the plastic is could probably just break the clips and pull it off from the outside.

Replacement snaps right in place.

Attached is pic showing the clips that hold the reflector in place.

The number of people having these crack seems high. One of ours cracked and partially fell out while the opposite side just cracked; both without provocation. They were replaced under warranty. So far, no recurrence.
