The stock lenses are plastic. You are going to melt them, or perhaps start a fire. I suggest upgrading the LIGHTS themselves, not just the lamps.
WHOA!!! Which one is it? Are my headlights in any danger or something? Let me know asap please. Thanks.

Do not exceed the factory 37watt rating with the stock light assemblies on the Fogs. If you want 55W or 100W fogs, you must upgrade the housing/lens to a glass design.

For the sunshade, from a 93 FSM:

1 Cycle unit to vent position and slide shield and sunshade forward.
2. Pull rear end of sunshade down slightly and slide trough and shield rearward so stops on sunshade clear trough and shield.
3. Remove sunshade by rotating to disengage rear clips.

Hard to read, i know.

Yeah...Factory service manuals are written for people a lot smarter than me. If someone were smart enough to interpret that jumble, why would they need the manual?
