Wales removing amber lenses R56

Got round to removing the horrid orange lenses from the headlights on my clubman.
I tried the headlight out method which worked well but the headlight needed adjusting as it was catching the surround, this was fiddly and a pain in the butt.
The other side was done with the headlight in place.
I jacked up the car to gain access to the bulb holder, I then removed the bulb, then with a bit of prodding with a small screwdriver pushed the barbs holding the orange lens in place.
The lens falls down into the headlight housing where it can be removed.
Replace the clear bulb with a silvered amber bulb and your sorted. 100% better
