Yes, I have the same problem on my 2009 Aveo. Headlamp went out and trying to replace it, the plastic is just crumbling. I can't get it back together because the sockets are all broken and the brackets have come off. it is happening to the other headlight enclosure also. It is the gray back part of the housing. the clear part looks fine.
