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.

But I want these

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!

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.
