    Is this possible? Because when I try to take my fogs out, it feels as if the bottom is screwed on or something. I know that there are two things that hold it on the right and left, but when I get them free, the bottom holds down. So, that's why I'm asking if I can just directly clean the fogs and apply them while they're in? Mahalo

    i just took my fogs out to smoke them and if you look at the bottom screw theres a little dial behind it(same one in your headlights to adjust them up/down, left/right) its just smaller, thers a rubber thing and inside it theres a screw which connects to that little dial, not sure if im making sense but just take that screw out and the dial will spin and once thats completely loose, the two side tabs will slide out too and just push it out, same way with the install

    I did lamin-x while they were in, its kind of a pain in the ass to do. I'm not happy with them and will be ripping them off and getting the yellow paint instead.
