take a screwdriver and pry up against the reflector almost like your going to break the lense. it should eventually pop off. then take needle nose pliers and break the reflector up into a million pieces and pull um out one by one. its a major pain in the ***. i just bought clear corner lights instead haha cause im lazy.

i did clear one of the stock reflectors though lol then gave up on the other.

wow.. you took the break it up into a million pieces literally :p

Just for future reference when people find this thread. If you TWIST the plastic with needle nose pliers, it will break into longer strands that you can then pull out. I did this about a year ago and definitely did not have to break it up as much as you did :)

Great Job.

My one suggestion is to not drill through the exterior portion of the light. I just put a long screwdriver up in there and pried to the side and the whole thing broke free, so I got every piece out without touching compromising the exterior lens.

I drilled on the top corner and then sealed it so no water could get in, so far no issue and its been raining ALOT in the last 2 weeks. but yeah i was having trouble prying it out
