no, they are different shaped.

if you want the NL clear lights you will have to also get the side moulding with the indicator i believe.

i used a scraper to take mine of, as i was worried they would snap. It seems they are pretty flexible. They should be held on by double sided tape.

im interested in the same thing, but have no mould behind the indicator lense, so a fairmont one wont cover the mounting hole in the guard.
im planning on measuring the hole and keeping my eye out for what other cars have clear indicators, checking to see if they are big enough (hope the owners dont come back to their cars while im measuring! :oops: ), and getting some of them to mount.

well if you have clear EF ones, then they will fit.

Man how many answers do you need?

If you have an EF/EL GLi/Futura/Fairmont then NF/NL/DF/DL clear indicators will not fit 100%. You need to get the surrounding parts and parts down the side to make NF/NL/DF/DL indicators fit. These are called high spec mouldings.

Your other option is to track down a man named Ratman. He does clear inidcators for EF/EL GLi/Futura/Fairmonts that replace your current ones for about $70. He does awesome work.

Does that answer your questions?
