    i tried opening my stock sxi ones earlier, couldnt do it. Was gonna self tint them. And yeah one of thems got condensation. Id take all the old seal apart from the rubber off and put a good bit of silicon on, make sure its good 25year weatherproof stuff. that'll stop water getting in, maybe dry it out with a hairdryer

    Do a search on here. Some members have put theirs in the oven to soften the glue. Unsure of temp and time though

    You'll be ucky to find just a new lense anyway mate as they come sealed. I believe there is a how to however to stop them misting up, something simple like drilling a hold somewhere in the unit iirc

    Back in the Vauxhall fold - Astra Turbo & '82 Merc sadly missed, Two VX220's should keep me happy though

    to get the lenses off, put them in the oven gas mark 1 for about 5-10 mins(but keep an eye on them) till they feel warm, it makes the glue soft and you can prise them open with a screw driver there are plastic tabs you have to unclip aswell.
    make sure the whole edge is sealed with the glue stuff, think its less likely to get condensation then.
