Default IS300 Auto-leveling Height Sensor

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and also new to the IS. I bought my 2003 IS300 in November of 2012, and it has been awesome! I recently got the light on my dash telling me there is a problem with my auto-leveling headlight system. I did my research, and ended up taking out the front sensor only to find out it is corroded on the inside way beyond repair. It basically disintegrated when I took it apart and the terminals on the connector broke off as well. I know of the fix where you disable the system to get the light to go away, but I would really like to fix it and have it working the way it should. The part is almost $400 from Lexus, which I'm sure all of you are aware. I know I am posting in the wrong forum, but I am unable to post in the classifieds since I am new, but is there anyone on here who might have one for sale? Or who might know where I could get a good condition used one? I see there is one on ebay, but from the pictures it looks pretty used. Please let me know! Thanks in advance!

Welcome Jacob. While I don't have a spare sensor for you, I'm also interested if there is a source for these... my front sensor is completely busted as well.
