Imola 4.6 in the UK indicators mean turn signals.
I think he wants to clear out the orange in the "turn signals" but, as his vehicle is 2003 the only way to do it is either buy different headlights (with clear turn signals or that can be baked) or take out a Dremel (Did I mention we cut.) and open the headlights that way.
