I have one, but it is damaged. The leading point of the lens is cracked, the lens also has a scrape that should buff out.

Okay. So my front right blinker LED is out. I don't want to pony up the $1600+ for a brand new headlight assembly (for it only to not match the other one). I also wanted to install LED DRL's as I did on Evora Number 1. I thought about my options. I came across these:
JDM 30 LED Daytime Running Light DRL Kit Fog Day Lights Amber Turn Signal C01 | eBay

This would kill two birds with one stone and only costs $30 :) I'd wire them into the circular LED's in the headlight assembly and they'd act as my turn signals when required. I'd have to cover them in some sort of sealant to ensure my car washes don't jack them up as I don't see they're waterproof.

My question is: How can I disconnect my OEM LED front turn signal that is currently WORKING…just so both sides would match?

As I understand it, the turn signals and hazards run off the same fuse. Is there anyway to isolate the LED front turn signal?

Hope to hear back from the experts ?

bigbird06815, I assume you will be tapping into the right turn signal wire to wire in your new 30 LED DRL turn signal. So, on the left side, you could try to pop the left turn signal feed wire's pin out of the headlight plug and then use that to power the new matching left side turn signal. (If you can't get it to release, I guess could cut it instead.)

I haven't researched all of it yet but I'm keeping your comment readily available and will reference it during the job to assist as necessary :). Great suggestion! Andddddddd this is why I spent my evening pursuing LT every night ?
