New England Fidelity insurance told me the glass headlight lens was not covered as glass under Comprehensive. They routinely pay for windshields with no deductible, but I was told that headlights are excluded, and since I had to get the whole headlight assembly replaced (could not get just the lens) it includes plastic and metal so the deductible applies. Well, I threatened to shop elsewhere for coverage and sue them, and claimed only the part cost, and they finally paid up. They even sent an adjuster out to see that it really is glass, instead of just calling a dealer to ask. "Stupid, stupid, stupid." Nothing personal in that remark; just quoting Grisham.
