    yes and no.

    if you are "trying" to save the lens, go from the bottom, remove the bucket.

    most of the ones we have are cracked, so we go from the top.

    what do you use to cut the existing cover out? Do you remoce the entire old lens or do you leave the lip from the original lens in place and just grind the new one down to fit inside of it. Some detailed instructions and a few pics would really help somebody decide if they wanted to tackle this project themselves.

    once i get a chance to install a set, i'll provide a write-up and include it with the parts.

    it's really difficult to determine the extent of adhesive on the original installations. It's really easy to damage the fiberglass upon removal and more than likely damage the original headlight covers.

    if you take it to a body shop, you can at minimum tell them that it's glued in and must be cut out.

    I have two cracked covers and would love to see and read more on front side removal.
    Over 3000 lbs = boring. 0-60 over 4 seconds = boring. Under 1 g = boring. Noble, not boring.

    Godzilla,

    You may have seen this already, but just in case. The Noble Rossion Forum has some related threads from 2007 and 2011. Pinnacle and others share their experience with cracked covers:

    Amen, a fairly large project, BUT mine have been perfect ! since this work was done, no more cracks, and that is partially due to installing vent tubes IMHO which also eliminated heat retention and any fogging issues too !

    I Will most likely be getting a set of these from you when you have the,. mine are not cracked but they are looking pretty bad. it looks like something is breaking down in the lens itself.

    about 1/2 of the Nobles that we have come in are cracked or starting to crack.
