    it did for mine after i baked them back together. i would assume most household products would damage the lense. get a soft rag and use it with the wd-40. a nice long finger nail helped me out too.

    If it's the gray caulk that seals the lens to the housing try heating it up again and wipe off as much as you can, then use cleaning solvents.

    Isnt the light plastic? I would go easy on the solvents as it could etch the plastic. Try heating/scraping it off with a plastic squeegee first.

    Do NOT use a razor blade on plastic. Just use Goo Gone and your finger nail. It's not silicone BTW.

    Its butyl tape. Just pick it off. Butyl tape stays. It doesnt cure or harden. It stays the same as it was when it was put on. Just pick it off with your finger nail.
