You can buy them like the pic you have with the red reflector, dunno about red reflectors and clear indicators.

Yes you will have to cut the lens/plastic cover off and then remove the yellow filter behind it then silicone the lens back on

yep, its a VERY long tedious process, you have to cut all the way around between the housing and the lense (with a dremel or a knife) then pry the things apart, hoping that you got a set that doesnt have much glue holding parts you cant get to together, Dont try this on your own tailights buy a set from the wreckers, then remove the amber filter lenses and silicone them back together.

i had a thought after i spent about 10 hours on one tail light trying all different sorts of things, what if you got a short-ish piece of wire and stuck it into the end of a soldering iron?, would certainly be alot easyer and probably be a neater job aswell.

cheers,
Tomo
