Default Anyone know how to remove the orange..

remove the orange plastic covering in side the headlamp?

personally I havent done it or take the headlamps apart yet. So I want to find out first hand before breaking any screws.

I've already order the UK Philip silver vision to replace the existing signal bulb.

Anyone ?

Thumbs up

The only way to take that out is to take apart the headlights. Use a heatgun or bake it to pry apart. First one took a while but the second headlight came apart easily once you get the hang of it. Be sure to replace that little parking light before you reinstall back to the car.

Default another way

I removed mine by taking the headlights off of the car, popping the orange covers loose, and using diagonal cutters to reach in the hole and cut the covers into small pieces. Then just turn the assembly over and shake the orange confetti out. This takes patience and you have to be careful, but IMHO it beats taking your very expensive lights apart.

As an aside, where did you order your bulbs? I've been looking for them everywhere.

Default Headlights

Bake them at 200 for about 5 minutes and then the glue is easy to get apart. Just pry it open with a flat head screwdriver... just be careful cuz some parts of the light will be very hot. I did this with my Honda lamps and it worked beautifully. You can always reseal it with some silicone sealant from Home Depot or something. I intend on doing this same procedure to my headlights once I get my WRX as well.
Has anyone here been able to get any of the exact paint (not touch up) used on our cars yet? (without it being to expensive) I want to paint the housing the same color as the car like I did with my Civic. Thanks for the help....

there's a bunch of places online that sell the silvervisions (100% of the ones i found were UK).


I can't remember where I bought mine...

btw.. these bulbs are not exactly the same as the turn signal bulbs in the Subaru. They have UK plugs which are slightly offset from the US style. I clipped one of the plugs off and it fits in there fine now.
