Re: Lets discuss headlights and "clear corners"

lets talk about housing deconstruction...

how did you separate? pull it apart? use a screw driver?

what did you use to remove the adhesive? how did the remover not ruin the clear plastic?

what did you use to re-glue it?

Re: Lets discuss headlights and "clear corners"

first I took out every chisel, scraper, screwdriver, plastic pry bar, I had in tool box and brought in the kitchen. you have to start off gently and with something rather thin. you start at the end away from the amber. there are 4 locating pin like things. you can start near one of those. so you heat it for 13-14 minutes at 230. get some good leather gloves, no holes to handle the freaking light. it ****ing hot and its big. also be careful not to break the mounts. they stick out, you are trying to apply pressure to the pry tool, i used a towel kind of trying to make sure the mount wasnt unsupported or covered. you may even need 2 towels on the table. ok so you first need to start prying with something thin. you have to kind of break the seal. youy can start to see the edges seperate. so you do that for a few inches, then you get the next size tool. now remember, as you try to pry if you twist too hard, the tool digs into the bottom black part. that can be easily chewed up by the tool you are using. so there is no exact science here. my very first one went easy oner I broke the initial seal. I have done 5 more since then, none have been that easy. 3 of them required a cool down then a complete re-heat. like leftovers. so you work that one end, those two corners. once you get it to start, you progressively use a bigger tool or more pressure to get the seperation moving along. Like I said, it may taker to long and you need a reheat. so when you got an inch or so back there you can start pulling the halves apart. you may need to use a tool to loosen glue as you go. once you have a few inches and cang et your fingers in the opening, add more force to pull them apart. the amber end is last, and it is a bit more difficult to seperate that end. lots of glue and the parts just fit together deeper.



I left the adhesive, you reheat before resealing to reuse it, plus add some clear silicone too.




NOTE: Rumor has it that aftermarket OEM look headlights, exact aftermarket replacements not the projector or anything. supposedly open easier. ALl my expereince is with OEM Factory lights.

Re: Lets discuss headlights and "clear corners"

Let me add a little to what Rob has stated thus far. DEPO headlamps open up like BUTTER after 240 for 13 minutes!! Using nothing more than two small-sh flat head screwdrivers to get things started..then you can "peel" the lens out by hand once that is started. Do NOT try to use TYC brand headlamps...WAY worse to take apart than the stockers.

Overall I have openend THREE diferent styles of our headlamps (05-07): Stock, DEPO, and TYC. If you can afford it, buy a set of DEPO brand headlamps from eBay and save your stockers and yourself a huge headache!

Again, DEPO brand..240*..13minutes!

And don't forget to remove EVERYTHING from the headlamps (including the rubberish rings on the backside, lol!)

Re: Lets discuss headlights and "clear corners"

Nifty - I see lots of headlights on eBay. How do you know which ones are DEPOT?

Or do you have a place to share where we get them?
