Kidding, I have the general idea, I just dont want to mess something up, haha. Cant risk it.

So, I went out there, didnt see any pins. I saw what I thought was pins and pulled them out, but no luck with the head lights. Point me in the direction with a picture?

yeah I am its the only way to get the sealing glue soft enough to pull it apart, and use acetone to clean the lense it is all that will work

its not hard just

preheat over to 450

place in headlight for 10 mins

use flathead screw driver to pry tabs off (be careful)

clean lenses well with acetone

clip tabs back in

place in over for 10 more mins

apply even pressure over lense to make sure seal is secure

pretty clean lights
