Default Clear Headlights for 2000 Legacy Ltd?

I got an 2000 Legacy GT Ltd.

Would the clear headlights mod be the same for my car as the WRX, just a little different (shape of light)

Could someone list all the steps needed to do this mod. Thanks! also, has anyone done it successfully on a 2000+ Legacy? Im thinking about doing it sooon..

preheat oven to 200 or so. cook them for about 5mins and pull the halves apart when the glue melts, and pop out the yellow reflector. thats the short version. hit up scoobymods.com for the detailed instructions.
I know its nerve racking to cook important pieces of you car but its the way its done.

Default Headlamps

Acejam like biggreen says you can do a search in scoobymods for how to take the headlamps apart, you can do it this way but any that I
have seen done this way the plastic looks all melted to hell.


You have to heat them in an oven for about twenty minutes not 5 minutes like Biggreen says and then bend all the tabs back before forcing the lamp apart, I did it without heating or splitting the lamp.

Basically what I did was after taking the lamp off the car and working through the flasher or parking lamp hole using a fairly small flat blade screwdriver I forced the yellow reflector out of its groove, then I heated an old screwdriver with a propane torch, again working through the two holes I held the reflector with needle nose pliars and carefully sliced it up a bit at a time with the hot screwdriver.

It was time consuming and you need a steady hand so as not to let the hot screwdriver hit the chrome reflector or the lense of the headlamp as both are plastic, but if you do it this way you have no worries about moisture inside the headlamp no melted plastic and you will never know it was touched.

Ok I went and did the mod...


I cooked them for about 15 mins each, took em apart, popedout Amber reflector, heated them back up, then re-sealed them using a combination of stock glue stuff, and some windshield/headlight sealant.

The stock turn signal bulbs are amber/oragne. If I put clear ones in, would that make it illegal?

use clear bulbs that flash orange. or lightly dust the stockers with silver paint. Not using amber turn signals is asking to get hit IMO.

I'm just too sketched out about doing it. But it looks so nice!
