Hi guys

i just bought a set of clear side indicators that fit onto the standard EF/EL clip and i have no idea how to get the amber lens off so i can glue the clear lens on. its a piece of piss to get the whole indicator off but i need to get the lens off of the base clip. Anyone on here seen/heard of these before or know how to do this properly.

the pic will explain it better than i can.



Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Matt

The car manual tells you how to pull apart your indicator lense in half does it?
Dont think so....

ah no i shouldve been more clear..... DONT put them in the oven as the plastic backing is very soft.

However, it couldnt hurt to put it in for 15 seconds at a time and see if it makes it any easier to dislodge?
