oakley crowbars help

How hard is it to replace the lens on these goggles? I have a pair and I'm looking to switch the lenses. Anyone know, thanks

its pretty easy, tricky the first time to get everything aligned, align the nose bridge notch first

It's quite easy to remove the lens, not so to put it back on.
The difficulty lies in ensuring all the c-shaped hooks/cut-outs around the lens clip onto all the corresponding tabs in the frame.
I've always had extreme difficulty locking the final one in place, all the rest leading up to the final one are reasonably manageable.
Also, you should be very careful with where your fingers are placed and make sure you've gotten yourself a secure grip. In e midst of tangling with the goggle and forcing the tab into the cut-outs along the lens, one of my mates had his fingers slip and tore the foam on the frame.

As stated above. It's pretty simple. Just pop off the clips from the top center area of the lens/frame first and make your way all the way around to remove a lens, and to put one in, line up the center tab on the nose bridge first and line all the notches up with the clips. One more thing I learned is that it is a helluva lot easier to put the lenses in on a matte colored frame than gloss. The gloss finishes on the frame tend to grip the lens when you try and make it fit...
