How To :- Change Ford Focus Facelift Orange Indicators To Clear
T10 torx screw driver
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 :-
