    As above. There is a bit of a knack to it as mentioned. Sure I gently prised the end nearest the front of the car out a little, then applied pressure towards the rear and popped it out.

    I did the same a couple of months ago, along with Silvatec bulbs front & rear for a totally orange free look, you're right, it does look much better.
