Okay guys, i'm gonna clear out my headlights. Does anyone have a digram on how to remove the headlight houseing? I've heard that with Infiniti's you don't have to remove the bumper and that the housing slied out after removing a few bolts. This is the only thing holding me up right now.

How are you going to clear them out? Doesn't thisrequire baking them in the oven or something to separate the lens from the housing? I'd be aweful afraid of not being able to seal them back up properly and screwing up my expensive lights, but if you're going to give it a go, make sure to take pics and post a how-to.

I've done this before with my Acura TL. Just take the HID balast off, back in the over at 200 for 3 min and pry apart. Get some silicon sealent and seal back up.
I need to know how to remove the headlights. Anyone have a diagram?


Also, should I paint the chrom part black?

Wat do you mean by "clearing out" your headlights?

I was thinking about opening mine up and spraying the chrome part black. My brother did this on his IS300 and it seemed easy enough to do.

But... You can find a lot of spare headlights for the IS300 but you can't do the same for the FX so if you mess up it'll cost you an arm and a leg!!!

Be careful!

I would assume he intends to remove the amber side marker reflector from inside the housing.

Speaking of the headlight assembly. Anyone have good experience with cleaning the inside of the front lense without taking everything apart? With my new whiter/bluer bulbs, HIDs and stuff, the slightly cloudy (dirty) lense stands out even more though this car is always garaged and only has around 11K. I'm sure there is some way to clean it through one of the small bulb openings. Maybe some sort of flexible "snake" that one can tie baby wipes to? =P I'm sure theres a viable solution. Maybe some musical instrument snakes (trumpets, flute, etc.)?

Good point, I have some on mine too and it's bugging me, On my previous car...I removed the housing and pull water thru the bulbs openings, shake it up and let it dry and that was a big mistake cause it left out lots of water spots on the lense( Now, I am thinking about doing that with rain water) ....if you want use some type of wipes make sure they lint free,also keep in mind that the chrome and the lenses are extremely sensitive, they'll get scratch easily.
