I would also suggest doing one lense first to see if the effect is really what you want.

WOW.......so much easier than the 95... no cutting or anything...

sitting in my comptuer chair doing it.... first one took me about 20 min... 2nd one maybe 3 min...

i highly suggest adding to the techinfo that you should start from the high beam side and just pull her open that way, using the corner lense as a hinge

i differ, if you peal away from thye outside end, you only need to get it about 1/3 of the way appart, leaving the lense still mostly attatched to the housing, you can then squeeze the lense out through the end

Take parts out of box, remove 2 thumbscrews and 4 10mm nuts
take old corners out
put clear corners in
Return bolts
