Remove the headlights first. Then you'll see a screw hidden by the headlamp assembly. Remove the screw, and rotate the corners out.

Well, assuming yours are the same as mine were (and they should be), you need a phillips screwdriver.

There'* one screw, tough to reach without pulling headlamp out, but do-able.
Loosen screw. No need to remove it.
Carefully remove corner. I can't exactly remember, there might be a snap-in latch you have to press in with a screwdriver blade.
Disconnect lamp wiring connector with a half twist counterclockwise.
Replace lamp bulb with a yellow one so that blinkers are still yellow when on.
Insert bulb and connector into clear corner and reinstall.

If you are planning on replacing the yellow driving bulbs with silverstars or equal at the same time, you might find it easier to remove the whole headlight assembly first.

OK, thanks guys, but I got it out and looking at it, and I ran into a case of brittle plastic again. I've decided instead of clearing these and taking a chance on breaking them, I'll just save my money and buy a set.

While I'm too late..let'* clean this up:

On 92-95 remove the two headlight thumscrews and headlight. Then there should be 2 7mm bolts holding the front of the corner on.

96-99 you do not need to remove the headlight. The lights are primarily held in by 1 phillips head screw on the top and a couple clips when the light is pushed into place. I use a long screwdriver to push one of the clips slightly while gently pulling on the light.

Oh, I just assumed you had a clear set already.

Yeah, for the price you really can't go wrong getting a set of clears.
