    How long did it take y'all to seperate the lens from the housing? Worked on it for an hour and nothing so put it back in the oven to soften it up again. I did this mod on my car years ago and remember it not taking so long to pry the lens apart, or as hard. just curious

    Yeah removed the 3 screws, put the oven at 300 off then in for 10 then the oven at 275, left it on and put it in for 5 minutes and still nothing. Maybe it cause its 4 years old so a little harder? not sure

    Been running a thin flat tip through the seal to separate the lens but stil won't pry apart. I'll try the 325, off, then set it for 12 min...Hope this works cause between this and debadging yesterday, i dunno if my finger tips can take anymore lol

    Guess I should use my gloves, just thought I'd have a better grip with my dick beaters. Yeah the oven is off, light lens up on cardboard. Thanks for the tips!

    my fulcrum is the corner of the light... where the grill sits on the light... if you use that part as a fulcrum, make sure YOU SUPPORT IT... if not it could crack.
