you can't take out the amber off of your signals or sidemarkers. they are amber for good. the best you can do is remove the amber out of your parking lights. you'll have to get all new sidemarkers and signals if you want clear ones.

Here is what you do to take out the amber on the corner lights.
1) Boil a large pot of water, take off burner.
2) Place corner light in water for 2-3 minutes, this will loosen the glue holding the lense.
3) Remove lense - you may need a small screwdriver to help you pry open
4) Place lense in hot water again for 2-3 min to loosen glue around amber lense
5) Use pliers to grap edge of amber lense and pull you will probably crack the amber lense, continue around egdes and the middle will just come out
6) Use some fine sandpaper to sand the glue and edges of where the amber lense was to get rid of all the orange that is left.
7) Heat up glue on backing and clear lense with a hair dryer or heat gun and press back together hold this together tight till the glue cools usually about 1 min
8) Re-install on car with amber bulbs

Any questions let me know

Mike

Yeah, and anybody knows 80 x 2 = 160... unless you're a bloody retard, maybe you're used to hang out with retards. Is that why you felt it necessary to point that out Einstein?

BTW, you're still the master of the obvious. What sort of discovery will you make tommorow? That the sky is blue? I think you have an ID-10-T problem.

If you mean the corners - it's much more than that for doing it yourself. see for yourself.
