    Is the mk5 headlight

    Really stuck together. I've attacked the front of the car and got it in pieces again lol

    Need to seperate the headlights and have put them in the oven as suggested but after 30-40 mins they are still stuck solid !

    I've examined and cannot find any other fixings but how long do people put these in the oven for ?? I dont want 2 melted masses at the bottom of the oven after 3 hours

    oh right, from the sounds of your first post I thought you were cooking up a batch of new lights as we speak. going to give mine a go before too long, mainly to clean them out as after 125k on the clock, the estates headlights have seen better days and its not worth selling them in that state
