Four screws, one plug and your good to go [per headlight]. One screw is a little hard to get at, however.

Try doing a search and you should be able to find a how to.

If they are "cloudy" on the outside then you can just refinish them with a headlight restorer kit. Usually involves some wetsanding using progressively finer grits followed by a final polish and seal.

this is pretty simple to do as well, however if they are oxidized on the inside as well your sol.

I just replaced mine a few days ago with OE style replacements from ebay, $80 for the pair, they dont look at good as OEM but it works.

Please elaborate on the "they dont look as good as OEM". Mine are kinda cloudy, maybe a tad yellow and I was looking at some ebay replacements.
What's the difference?

Thanks :)
