    Obviously take the lights off the car and then using a heat gun (unfortunatly I only had a hair dryer lol) heat around where the lense meets the black back part of the light. U may need a knife or flat bade to get it started but prose them apart heating evenly and undo clips as you go and eventually should come off. Reverse process to put back on, and just to make sure they were re-sealed I used clear silcone on them aswell nothing worse than misty lights! I have heard about sticking them in the oven aswell to make the sealant tacky but didn't fancy this method myself lol

    In the oven at 70 degrees for about 10 minutes mate. Silicone becomes supple at that temperature, bare in mind, you may need to invest in some to re silicone the light.
