You bake the lenses in the oven to get them apart so you can paint them whatever colour you like, or you can go on ebay and buy already black headlights.

That's lame. Is that something you can swap over from your stock headlights maybe?

Just remove the screw from the plastic holder and put it back in the right way. Myself and a few other members have done this with the eBay headlights. The adjuster comes *** backwards, but it's an easy fix. No need to get reimbursed or cause a fuss.

If you need any clearer instructions, give me a PM.

Here's Why I cant put the stock adjusters into my new headlights. ( passenger side only) I got the drivers side turned around, passenger adjuster side stripped so its stuck where it is.

This is how the old headlights adjuster is connected
