1. This is where we start
2. Remove the headlight weather striping from around the headlight lens. Note how dirty it gets under there.
3. There are 5 tabs on the weather striping. Just lift tabs to remove. Watch out for the last one on the bottom, it's in a tight spot.
4. Clean and dry the tops of the headlight lenses thoroughly.
5. Make sure the lids fit correctly and that they are clean. Apply a bead of the "adhesive" to the underside of the eyelids.
6. You can also use 3M molding tape which can make removal easier.
7. Seat the eyelids to the top headlight lens, and hold them down for a few minutes.
8. Carefully reinstall the weather striping.
9. When reinstalling the weather striping be sure tuck the edge under the tab closest to the outside edge of the car. It's "notched" to fit that way to hold the striping down normally plus it'll help keep the corner of the eyelid down snugly.
10. Repeat for other side and you are done.
