Default Removing turn signal lens

I want to darken ( smoke ) the turn signal lens on my XC. I did a search and all I turned up was the painting part. I have that down but can't figure out how to remove the lens. Surely these come off or how else would you replace the bulb. Any tips?

Thanks DMac but just out of know how, do the lens come off?

Brake lights and turn signals are LED so you can't remove the lens. You could tape the housings and spray the lenses with VHT though.

So do the LEDs last forever?..or do we have to buy a complete blinker or tail light when they blow?
0n my 2010 Vegas the number plate light blew, the lens wasnt removable so I bought a hella replacement and filed it down to fit.
Out of interest I cut up the old blown one and found a normal globe inside!!!!
