How To :- Change Ford Focus Facelift Orange Indicators To Clear

 

Tools needed :-

Sharp knife
Pliers
T10 torx screw driver
Superglue
Silicone sealant
(or Hot knife / soldering iron)

 

 

Remove headlights from car.

Using a very sharp utility knife, cafefully cut out piece from rear of light (takes about 10-15 mins per light).
By cutting with a knife instead of a dremel tool, the cut out piece is still a tight fit in the opening, so is therefore easier to glue back in later.
TIP :- After knife has pierced the plastic, rock knife backwards & forwards slowly and it cuts and moves along nicely.

And you should have a cut out like this :-

Pop out cut out piece :-

Using a T10 torx screwdriver, unscrew the lens holder retaining screw (arrowed) :-

Remove lens holder from headlamp :-

Using long nose pliers, squeeze the plastic prongs of the lens either side, pushing forwards to release the orange lens :-

Remove orange lens :-

Clip in new clear lens :-

Replace lens holder with new clear lens back into headlamp and insert and tighten the T10 torx screw.

 

There are 2 ways of closing / sealing up the cut-out piece :-


Glue back in the cut out piece from the rear of the headlamp unit using superglue.
After glue has set, cover join with some silicone sealant to be sure of a water tight seal (black silicone is available from diy stores, to disguise the cut).

Or another way that some people have used is to use a hot knife (heated on cooker hob) or a soldering iron to melt the cut-out piece back into place.

This method is a lot quicker and a lot neater, as can be seen in the following picture :-
