ps....We are all aware aren't we, that if the airbag warning light is on, all of the airbags are disabled and none of them will not deploy in the event of a collision...

Amber lenses just are removed by pulling them out of the clips, which is very easy. Similarly I didn't reseal them afterwards, popped them back in the oven to soften the sealant and then put them back together. The bulbs can be brought from ebay and don't cost much, something like this would be suff...

Hopefully this will work as I'm posting from my phone! I took out the amber lenses to give the detangoed look, I think it looks more modern and freshens up the front end, although ideally I would like to put the clear lenses in eventually but they are so hard to get hold of. http://i470.photobucket....

Yes the rear and sides of the cover get tucked in under the bodywork to give a neater and more finished look. I tried removing the cover the opposite way to the install process as shown in the video and found it a lot easier to get it off as to previous methods used :lol:
