Anyone have pic of the rear reflectors install before and after? Post if you replaced the red rear reflector to match the color of the vehicle exterior body paint.

Thx!

Ok, got it done

No need for pry tools, just a 8mm socket and a heatgun...also a pair of gloves

Do not try to do this in cold temps, my first attempt fail cuz the outside temp was around 40-50 degree. I'll say 60 degree and above will be better.

I use the heatgun on low and you have to heat all around the reflector for a good 3-5 minutes. Also a good idea to use a rope to hold the plastic fender. I tie it against the wheel so that it will remain open for access.

Push on the reflector and it will come off, if not keep heating it
