    A couple of questions re X SQUARED Polished Carbon/Black Iridium 006011-06

    My lenses are badly scratched - so if I order replacements, is it easy enough to take out the damaged ones and fit the new? - is there a correct method to doing this?

    Also, can I replace the Polished Carbon/Black Iridium with a Polarised type?

    Thanks in advance.

    Very easy. You need a t-6 torx screw driver. Loosen the screw in the lens orbital. Remove screw and gasket place in safe area so it doesn't get eaten by mean carpets. Lens comes out through front of frame. Match up lens to new one making sure its correct side. Install lens into front of frame making sure it fits into orbital groove. Once installed insert gasket with notched side towards lens, pinch orbital closed reinsert screw and snug down with t-6.

    OO6011-06 XS is already supposed to have Black Iridium Polarized lenses in it... unless you have the OO6011-01 which is non-polarized. Either way, yes as xmetalmaniac said, all XS lenses are interchangeable :)
