    Clear Corner Lenses install

    does anybody have any tips or tricks to making the swap out any easier. Also looking at the clear lense it appears taller then the stock lense, at least what you can see from the front looking at it in the bumper cover. does the lense extend up into the cover about an inch or so???

    Need to remove your head light it makes it much easier. Also before you install, Drill some vent holes on the bottom side or they will fog and you will burst the bulbs out.

    Remove the headlight to gain access to the corner lights. You will notice that the bumper covers some of the light so thats why they look shorter. I suggest you put some silicone around the new corner lights so they don't fog up.

    The bumper covers a good portion of the lens man. Take off your headlight lenses. Remove bulbs from everything. Now most people always forget, but there's a bolt that goes through a clip in the center of the corner lens. Take out the bolt and pop off the clip. It took my friends 5hours easy to get theirs in from the bottom, so it's def alot easier to take the headlights off and go in from the top. Hope that helps man.

    Going from the bottom was kicking my a$$ too. Listen to Mike Something. I know from experience. Once the headlights were out, the install of the corners was not hard at all.

    I got the headlight out just fine and did the install very easy, but the driver side didnt fit right and they are sending me another one to replace it. the stocker fit perfectly as it should the aftermarket one didnt. if that doesnt fix it maybe i will cut the lenses off and put them on the stocker pieces
