    can the orange from the rear lights on my 1999 saloon be removed?

    or is it just the colour of the plastic moulding?

    cheers

    Doubt it, and you dont want to be opening them up either, cos once the seal is broken.....

    Your best bet is prob to get to the scrappy for a set of clusters with the clear lenses, should be a straight swap 10 min job
    Hey that smells like regular - she needs premium dude, PREMIUM, DUDE!

    Make sure you get the covers too, as the red ones wont fit the clear ones. Well mine didnt anyway...

    And make you get a set of silvertec or Philips silver vision indicator bulbs to remove the 'fried egg' effect.
