Hi,
I want to put in some reflector.
I need some help: Can someone please make a closed up photo of the red part or can anyone tell, if there are holes, where the green spots are?
Thanks a lot

Yes those are holes. All USDM headlights have reflectors there.

Ok, so I need to drill holes in my headlights, or remove the clips on the reflector.

Are you sure, that looks like a reflection of something behind the camera... that side reflector has been removed.

for ex

No, they haven't, those aren't USDM headlights.

I don't see why you would want to add them, everything here tries to take them out.
Either way, I think it would be easiest to source reflectors then just go off that, because I believe it makes a rectangular shape.
I'll snap a photo of mine today for you.

I want them, because nobody has them here and I like them a lot.

Sorry, but I didn't get everything, just a problem of my english :$
I'm waiting for the picture, thanks. Maybe I can glue them or whatever.

do not drill into your headlights!! you need to search for "clearing corners how-to" - which shows how you:
-remove headlamps from car
-bring into workshop: unscrew the mini screws in the back of the lamps
-bake in oven for 3 minutes to loosen headlight adhesive
- separate the two halves of the headlamp assembly (careful- it will be hot!)
- now you have three parts: the back, the front and the middle
- add reflector in middle "shroud" piece


make sense?

(Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic.)
There's my passenger side. I have one of the drivers as well if you need it.
Anyways, that's what I meant by it was kind of a square. I think it would be a lot easier to just get the reflector, and cut off the tab then use tape or glue to mount it.

He's adding the side reflector, not the middle (not that it really matters, same idea.)
Either way he's going about it right, (at least I don't think) he was planning on drilling the outside of the headlight, but opening them and making the mounting point to add the side reflector.

I shure you could find some one in the USA that you could buy there reflectors from.

Seeing how so many people remove them here.

I have the reflectors already.
I meant to drill the holes, that are shown in your picture, not in the glas I want to blacken them,too. Thanks for the pic. I guess, glue would be the easiest.

You're adding reflectors that everyone takes out, and blacking them out anyways?
I guess it would be unique, and if you want unique, you should swap fog lights with me.
