Recently had the fog lights off the 2011 Sport to install 4300K - yellow LED H10 replacements. I noticed that there is a wrap-around metal shield that the H10 lamp slides into when installed, which only allows the top half of the lamp's light to hit the reflector. I guess it's to give the resulting beam's strength a bias to the middle and down on to the road way, which is desirable. That is OK with a halogen lamp which radiates light 360 deg but LED has a defined arrangement of LED points and a majority of them may end up being shielded.
The shield is screwed into a post internal to the light housing and the only way to remove / modify would be to split open the light's housing by removing the clear lens. Seems like it has a gasket or even glue.
Just wondering if anyone successfully split one open and would share their technique. I think I could pull / break off the shielding with long-nose pliers but it is my desire to fine-tune the shield so 3 of the four rows of LED points are unshielded.
As you can see in the pics, functional fog lights (powerful yellow color range) are desirable. Lots of deer around here too.
