    easiest way is to remove the headlights and take the out and then install the smoked ones from the top...

    then just realign the headlights once you put them back in...

    takes like 30 min to do both sides...

    oh and Preston told me to make sure you have holes in them so that any condensation can dry out and not cloud over the inside of the lenses or shorten the life of the bulbs (if not you will have to drill holes in them. my came with holes in them already, but double check yours...

    Umm....He said Turn Signals. Are the turn signals on Camaros built into the headlights and the orange lights on the bumber just driving lights.

    I am not sure about the Camaros, but on my TA there is a flap that opens under the car right in front of the tire. Two 10mm bolts hold it closed.

    turn signals are the front corner lesnses...they are one in the same. if you try to go from the bottom you have to dick w/the tray that they sit it. trust me i know. i changed out my orange 'turn signals' to clear front 'corners' about a month ago by going from the top. its just easier that way...

    Fun job.... NOT.

    I changed out my fronts for some clears, and it took just about 15 mins per side, but I had to just about use a pry bar to get them out. The housing is just a little bigger then the tray where they sit, and I had to pull out the front of the nose, almost to the point of breaking, before they would come out, and it still cost me all of the flesh on my knuckles. Putting the new ones in was just the reverse. I was so worried i was gonna crack the paint, or just break the fiberglass nose, but the look great, so it was all worth it. The back ones, 5 minutes. But these are held in with one phillips head screw. I know I curse the designers of the car that day, lol.
