hi all !!

how do you open the headlamp? i havent tried yet, but i figured i should ask before i go running a muck... i heard you have to bake it in order to open it, is there an easier way? it just sounds like it could go so wrong as i am very accident prone

Baking them open is the easiest way. 200 degrees for 20 minutes and they will peal apart. Rebake them for 10 minutes to reactivate the silicone to seal them back up. I've done this about 15 or so times on different headlights. It's pretty easy.

To remove the headlights, you have to remove the bumper then strip all removable parts from the assemblies prior to baking. It's an involved process but it's not difficult.
