Re: help please!

heat it up to 200 F, and the glue should come off, then slowly pry it apart.


then use sealer to seal her up again and let it dry.

Re: help please!

just buy the clear or smoked turn signal lenses off ebay for like $10-$20 and put amber LED bulbs in it like I did. It looks awesome. I also cut out the rear taillights and took the amber pieces out as well. I have amber LED bulbs in those sockets too.

Re: help please!

yea it way easier just to buy a set, like mentioned above. no you dont need to take the bumper off, if you look at the turn signals, right on the side of it, you can see a spot to place your Philips head screw driver. wish i had a picture to show you...

oh wait a second.......

Check 2nd post slowly heat in your oven. Once the glue gets tacky enough you'll be able to pry the lense from the plastic housing, Once that is off I have no idea what you'll be looking at I would guess you'll have to cut that thing out with like a dremel or something, then I would get a air compressor and blow all that crap out and rinse with water, dry it completely then heat it back up to get the glue tacky again then stick the lense back on and let cool.
