    I just picked up a set of Mars and would like to replace the lenses. How difficult is this? I'm used to just doing the normal frames of oakleys and other glasses but nothing like this. The little screws/washers are something I've never dealt with. Anyone have a tutorial or any experience with the x metal mars and replacing the lenses?

    You need some tiny needle nose pliers and a steady hand!

    they're c-clips. you just need a flathead screwdriver to pop them off..or a c-clip expander i you have one with a really fine point. they break easily and i wouldnt try it..

    which mars do you have and why are you changing lenses? oem replacements?

    You can buy replacement c clips on eBay? Or are they bad quality. And the lenses that came with reel of cig smoke. They also have swirl marks in them. I'm going to take them to work(LensCrafters) tomorrow to see if they'll clean up any before I order new lenses. Was just checking on the difficulty.
