If its just the glass headlight, you should be able to buy a replacement at most local auto parts stores for about $10 or so. It's held in by three small scews that hold the metal retaining ring front the outside. You will first need to remove that section of plastic grill that goes around the lights. High beams are different from low beams, so know which one you need before shopping.
