Alright, I've got a vert question....My pasenger side rear headrest must have deployed for some reason. It's about 2 and a half inches raised and I don't know how to get it to go back down. Do I have to take it to the dealer?

I just bought smoked corner lenses, and I really like the look. I was wondering if any companies made smoked taillights for convertibles? I know umnitza has them for the coupe, but they dont have anything for verts. Also, does anyone know how hard these would be to install. Ive changed the bulbs a bunch of times in my tail lights, but i have never taken off the actual lens. Thanks guys.

I've searched and haven't found any so if you please drop a note. On the other hand, there's film that can be placed on them but I have opted to not do that.

Should be about 30 bucks. I'd buy the sheet and not the pre-cut one because since we have convertible it might be different. What you do is place it over the part you want tinted, cut the shape out of the tint sheet, then clean the tail light real good with 50/50 water and alcohol solution, place the cut our piece on the lens and shape it, it might need some heat to curve the corner (use a blower). The step by step process is in their website.

no, Check your manual they will show you how to bring it back down. This is if its the roll bar you are talking about.. I had to do it once when they both deployed. I was scared as **** but was glad to know you could redo it ureself
