It is a pretty easy mod, but just use common sense and be gentle with it. Dont rush anything, if the plastic lense and grey plastic do not come apart with minimal force, heat it a bit more, youll thank yourself later. That plastic lense is really easy to crack.

When putting lense back together make it really hot again and try to get it aligned properly the first time.

Also, when taking the corner lense unit off the body be gentle as well, I actually broke the plastic tab off the screw mount thing. Id recommend a large flat head screw driver to gently pry (where the cornerlense and headlight meet up) the unit off the body.

Hope this helps,

keith, i did 3 cars so far, i can help you one night. since tools were stolen from my car, i have nothing to work with. you'll need a few small flathead screwdrivers, a normal size philips, a heatgun (i used a small space heater), and a dremel with a plastic cutting tool. If you want, i also have blue bulbs, and if you wait for next monday, i can get you "white" bulbs like i got in mine.
