if your inpatient dont do it because there is a large chance of damaging the lenses..
it took me about 2 hours on each light..

it involves cutting the backing away from the lenses,sometimes you can carefully lever the lens away but usually the lense will crack or break..

its best to use a thin cutting wheel on a dremel or heat up an old sharp knife with a gas torch and carefully cut between the lense and backing..
once the lense has been removed you remove the orange lense from the main lense, it might need a little light grinding on the lense edge to remove some of the factory glue..once the orange lense has been removed its just a matter of using a fine bead of sickaflex so stick the lense back on. hold it in place with tape overnight until dry and done...
and then you get orange replacement globes...
you can remove both the orange and red lenses if you want the full ricer look... :)

if its flashing fast one of the globes on that side doesnt work. you said the back one doesnt work so that would be my guess.

when changing globes try not to touch the glass with your fingers. i find they like to blow after that, dont know why that is tho

I wanted to do the other way (kinda). I wanted to put a red lense into my set of "altezzas". I spent three days trying to use a heat gun to get the things flexy enough to come apart. all I ended up doing was getting the s**t and destroying the casing of the passenger side one. I'm not patient enough for this s**t.

had the same idea, did some searching and turns out all the ricers are doin it with some kind of stain class window paint, same stuff as tail light tint.

never tried it but from what i read could be possibility
