There seem to be alot of people on ebay selling this information which can be found for free on the internet so save your money and this is how you do it.

Remove the headlights. To do this simply undo the two twist clips that hold the grill in place and remove. Then lift out the two tabs on each headlight, disconnect the wiring plug and remove the headlight.

Undo the retaining clips around the headlight. Using a hairdryer heat up the seal all the way around the headlight. This will make it easier to remove the lense, although it will come off without doing this.

Gently but firmly prise the lense away from the main body of the headlight.

There are two small torx screws that hold the chrome suround in place, one at the top and one behind the sidelight lense. Remove these and the surround will come away.

Rub down the surface of the surround thoroughly with a scotchpad to key the surface for paint. Which paint you use is up to you.

you will need grey primer and satin (matt) black. (1-2 tins of each) Give at least two good coats of primer and at least the same again with the black.

Refitting the surround once dry is a reverse of the removal procedure.

Before refitting the lense it is essential you give it a clean inside.

There are also a couple of options with the indicator lenses. You can either tint them or remove them

To refit the lense you need to decide what type of sealant you are going to use. Basically as long as its waterproof and seals anything goes. Gasket sealer and clear silicone sealant are best

Apply a bead of your chosen sealant all the way around the headlight main body where the lense sits.

Refit lense and reattatch all clips and retainers, then allow to dry for a good few hours. (overnight would be best)
