I'm new here and just bought an 02 Escalade, and I've seen newer models without the orange corner in the headlamp and was wondering where to purchase the clear one or what other options were out there?

Here's mine.

most people clear it themselves... open up the headlights and take out the orange lens. I'm personally too scared to do it myself. But if u got the balls then do it.

I did the search came up with the instructions, but I'm not the guy to attempt that. I need someone else to do it .
I want to see what it looks like on white as well.

I did it myself and want to stress how easy it was as long as you use a heat gun (being careful not to melt the housing), clean as much of the old silicone out as possible and use a silicone gun to apply the new hi-temp seal. Go for it!

I dont think they make clear corners for our Escalades. I did it myself and was not to bad at all. Heres a picture.

an oven works too. ~200 degrees softened the goo up for my Silverado headlights and turn signals.

Sure. I'll get some pics and post them. The truck is clean. Its sitting on 23" Lexanis. Its got no beat, but the brown finish inside is now black.

I tried a couple of searchs. One in this forum and then the general forum.I came up with a few hits in the general forum but they were for CTS,etc. If someone has the time or a copy of the "how to remove orange lenses" I would appreciate it. Also if there is somewhere you can send them and have it done I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Nice pic's thanks, one more question, you tinted your rear window. Have you had any problems with those two metal tabs in the window when running your defroster or did you just tint around it? Would you be able to take a close up pic for me and email it. Thanks.
