Amazon.com offers that service. You can search for aftermarket replacement parts for your Toyota based on year and model.

For example, for your specs (2004 Toyota Camry):

If you have an intact plastic cover look for a part number on it and then google the part number enclosed in " " so that it only finds exact matches, or search eBay or Amazon using the number.  If the number comes up with a bunch of results relating to items other than car parts, add the word lens or light or toyota to the search outside the " " to filter it down to car parts.  Often sellers of unbranded aftermarket car parts will give the manufacturer's part number (OEM) as well as their own part numbers in listings.  If you have a Haynes repair and maintenance manual for the car, it might list the OEM part number.

For a 2004 car you are unlikely to find a company stocking a brand new original manufacturer part.  You may well get one from a car breaker, but it would probably be easier trying to find an unbranded new part.  The rear light cluster I just bought via Amazon for my Fiat is an unbranded one made by a large Taiwanese company named DEPO Auto Parts Ind. Co. (http://www.depoautolamp.com).  A Toyota dealership would probably buy in an unbranded part from them or from a similar large aftermarket parts manufacturer.

Sometimes different car manufacturers use parts that are common to other manufacturers, so you may find that the starter motor, fan blower motor, or other similar components might be sold as aftermarket spares for Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Suzuki, Mazda, Subaru, Mitsubishi, and Lexus.  You even find that some French, German or Italian cars share the same parts, but plastic light clusters and covers are usually unique to manufacturers, models, and specific years because they match the shape of the body and are not hidden away where the shape and size doesn't matter.

Be sure to check that the part listed is for the USA/North American Toyota Camry.  European and Australasian models can differ slightly in shape.

I have already searched on Amazon.com using the method described by Serena Hsi and have been unable to find this item.

Is there anyone who can provide me with an exact URL address of where I can order these two front bumper fog light plastic covers for my 2004 Toyota Camry LE?

I need to replace both the driver side and passenger side covers.

If any further information is needed please let me know.

So you need the clip-in plastic covers that would be fitted to models that came without fog lights?  You are not talking about the plastic lenses for the actual fog lights?

A quick Google search (from the UK) comes up with loads of matching results for eBay UK and USA, and one right at the top of my results for an American company called JC Whitney.  It seems that the replacement part is the same for the 2002 Toyota Camry through to 2006.

(Click on the "Continue to JC Whitney" link when the  VigLink Shopping page comes up).
http://www.jcwhitney.com/p3091083/sku-10295443.jcwx?filterid=g23

JC Whitney is a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Auto Parts.

To ensure that you get the same results as me and that it is compatible, start here:
http://www.jcwhitney.com/2002-2014-toyota-camry/replacement-direct-fit-fog-light-cover/p3091083d2168y2002-2014j1.jcwx
and select the manufacturer, model, year, and sub-model  You should get 3 results:  Left, right, and pair.  The pair is $56.96 and replaces original part numbers: "52128AA901" and "52127AA901" or Partslink Numbers "TO1038104" and "TO1039113".  You might want to Google those numbers or enter them into an Amazon search to see if you can get them cheaper.

As I mentioned earlier about different cars using the same parts, one of the reviews says "I bought this for a 2004 Toyota Corolla LE and they fit and installed perfectly".  It will be your responsibility to verify that they fit your Camry LE though.  I just did the legwork for you.  I'm pretty sure you are capable of doing any additional searches for yourself.

Here are pictures of what I'm talking about of what needs to be replaced.

The URLs in the previous postings mention "Fog Light Cover - Plastic, Black" which won't be right. These fog lamps need to be clear plastic.

Or is the plastic piece part of the actual fog lamp?

In your photos, it doesn't appear like the fog light assembly is part of the front bumper but nestles just inside the bumper.

Are you looking to replace the fog lights?

The item you need is the clear plastic LENS that will fit onto the existing fog light ASSEMBLY.

I really doubt that new clear lenses will be available on their own as original manufacturer parts or as other brand aftermarket parts.  I think you will have to buy aftermarket complete assemblies.  I doubt whether a car breaker would remove the lenses from complete assemblies and sell them to you separately and be stuck with assemblies with no lenses.

Do you still have the existing lenses or are they smased and completely missing?
Have you figured out wheter you can remove the existing lenses without breaking the clips that hold them into the assemblies?
As I mentioned in a previous comment, look for a part number on your existing lenses.  This is usually embossed on the inside.  Armed with the numbers you might find new replacement lenses by searching the Internet.

The other alternative is to replace the complete fog lamp assemblies.  There are a couple of manufacturers of aftermarket assemblies on the JC Witney website.

Don't just go by the generic pictures on this page.  You have to look at each of them, just as I have had to do to dig out the ones I have shown above.

Although aftermarket fog light assemblies will be guaranteed to fit your car, the lenses probably have the clips in different positions from the original lenses.
