Red circle starting to come out of tail light...any ideas?

I have Altezza tails on my celica and the red circle on my right one is starting to pop out a little and I can see the white bulb now behind it at night when my lights are on..its not too bad but it is very annoying! Has this ever happened to anyone? Is there a way i can like pull the circle back into the housing? I dont want to take the plastic outside off becuase I just re-glued it on from falling off lol so that would be a bitch.

Take them shitty things off your car and run them over repeatedly with a truck until they are dead and then throw them away grin


Go back to stockers man thumbsup

The way to fix the red circles is to hit the tail light with a hammer as hard as you can. The harder you hit the better.

Dont listen to these douches. tongue If you like em thats what matters. But as far as the problem goes, looks like you have to take them apart again or get new ones.

We aren't mocking YOU dood. Its apparent that these lights in question are falling apart already and need to be put to rest grin I had a set on my car and they filled up with blow sand and water after about a month thumbsdown if you must have them then but a new set.

I have carbon fiber altezzas tailights on my celica, and i think they look good. My car isnt rice. Its a matter of opinion. I also have the same problem but its not too noticeable. Im not gonna even bother taking mine apart to fix, cuase I dont think its that big of a deal. By the way, I think chrome altezzas dont look all that bad on silver celicas, but ONLY On silver celicas lol

Yea in that picture i had the flash, so the carbon fiber backing looked kinda like chrome lol. But in normal daylight and at night they look real good. I love how they split in the middle, the brakes are on the outside of the circle, and the turning signal is on the inside other side of the circle.

i have chrome Altezza's too and i get complemented on them all the time, any way i dont know what to tell you besides the oven idea that loosens the clear housing off the light and gives you access but i am not sure on how to do that.

i would have to disagree on the fact that only stock lights look good on our cars, cause the tyc red's look very nice, and on the right car the other colors they come in can look good too. As far as straight up Altezza's, they just remind me of ricers, but to each his own.
