Opening 1st gen Headlights

How difficult is it to open the headlights on an 01-04 Taco? I have dirt and stuff inside the headlight, can I just open it and reseal it like the 2nd gen?

Thanks

if your getting dirt and stuff in there im sure theres some sort of seal that went bad, you could just pop them off and take a look?
