Re: Headlight baking instructions

Opening up WJ headlights is a cakewalk compared to WK HIDs. Give it another shot. You need to pry them with force but slowly. If you pull too hard/fast at first the housing just bends. That butyl rubber is very sticky and doesn't give way immediately. Once they start to separate, they start to come apart more quickly. There is more than one way to skin this cat but that's just how I've always done it.

Thanks dude...next time I get a minute to try this again I need to be a little less worried about the housing
