Electric EG1 Changing Lens Problem

Hey, guys!

So I got myself Electrics EG1 Goggles that are black/bronze with silver mirror.
They are way too dark for those dark and snowy days, so they gave me a bonus yellow lenses to go with them!

Now I've seen the video on youtbe how to change lenses on goggles. but the EG1 are really tough.
I'm afraid that they are going to break when Im trying to pull the top part off. Should I just go with
violence and strenght - risk cracking the lens?

Any help would be appriciated!

It doesn't get eaiser. You just realize you're not going to break them and that it takes a lot to break them. Just make sure you're doing it right and you'll be fine. For the top it's just pulling apart. When removing the nose is when possible breaks can happen. Still hard though.

Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for your goggles. I'm just giving personal experience and advice. It's up to you whether or not to take it.

I did it!

Thanks for the help ThunderChunky.

You need a bit more force to pull the lens out than what was shown on the youtube video.
But putting the lens back was a bitch.. Especially the nose part.

Yea, geting it out is easy. Putting it in is the hard part. I always fuck up the nose and the plastic nose part isn't touching the lens. Theres a little gap. Make sure there isn't any.
