Default clear headlights

This mod is so easy. I just did mine yesterday. The hardest part was taking the headlight out of the car...2 bolts, and one push-in clip/each headlight. I highly recommend using a heat gun after removing the 6-7 clips that hold on the clear lens. The heat gun comes in handy when trying to pull the lens apart from the rest of the "siliconed" housing. The orange lens just pops out frome behind the internal black housing. Just like delicate surgery...not really,LOL. Put it all back together the same way you took it apart and enjoy! Very clean look...next the rears?

For those that have done this, any condensation or fogging problems on the inside the headlights?

I took the lights apart inside the house when I did it, no problems with fogging or condensation. But if you look close at the headlights you can see my fingerprints in some areas on the inside of the lense, its not that bad or even noticable unless you point it out. I would recommend wearing latex gloves when doing this...

Just polish them before you put them back together. I double checked myself when I did my corners.

Mine are clean, no fogging or finger prints. If you look very closely in the back there is a speck or two of dremel dust but no one other than me has ever noticed even if I point it out.

That'* what I like the best. It gives it a clean look, but factory.

Tint too. No one'* ever said anything that I haven't told them.

Now the first time I take someone out with my red interior lights...

I did have so fogging in the passenger side headlight.
I took both lights out tuesday and notice that the fog
came from a crack in the plastic on the top of the housing
of the light. When I took it apart a small amount of
water came out. Dried everything up cleaned the lens.
and crazy glued the cracked plastic and resealed. Since
it was cold out and warm in the apartment it fogged up
at first but is fine now. Didn't have to do anything to the
driver side light.

But did you know that with the headlights out you can get to
the fog lights without going under the car and removing
that plastic panel? But I think that will only work on SE'* due
to the fogs being on the outer edge. Just an FYI

I wondered about this, since installing my angel eyes my lights are now WAY out of alignment. Removing the headlights and attempting to adjust by "eye" is'nt working. That panel underneath just pops out or what?
