Upgrading Headlights from Amber to Clear

Hello! I have been trying to find out if the upgrade from amber to clear headlights requires modification or not.. I can't seem to find the answer!

I am not upgrading to Litronic or xenons... just the halogen amber to halogen clear....the late halogens that came on the 2003 and up 986 Boxsters.

Does anyone know if modification or any other parts are required for the upgrade? Or do I just remove and replace?

The part numbers for the clear ones I want to install are;

98663113214
98663113114

Please let me know! Thank you!!

You will also need the "triangles" in the corners.
Here's a packaged set: http://www.****************************************************.com/product/98663113114AND98663113214.html?Category_Code=986li ghts

The removal & reinstall is very simple following the steps in the owners manual.

You can also remove the amber filter within the 'clear' housings following these instructions:

Thanks for the responses guys. Stroked, I already have the lights, so I am not looking to purchase anything, other than the triangles as you suggested...

When you say follow the steps in the owners manual, are you referring to the one that came with the car?

Also, the first link you provided says "set comes with all of the necessary parts for installtaion" so I'm assuming there are additional parts required to do this?
