alright, I already cleared the parking lights without too much trouble. now i moved on to the headlights and their driving me insane. first I tried putting them in the oven at 200 for 8 minutes. That didnt work. Then later on I tried 450 for 6 minutes. that isnt working either. does anybody have tips for getting these apart. im afraid im gonna tear them up trying to do this. The sticky doesnt really help me for this problem.

i did 175 for 10 minutes. takes forever. just be careful. you only get about 2 or 3 minutes to work between times in the oven.

i can get the butter knife about 1/8-1/4 in that little space but not even a sharp knife will go deeper. Do I just keep prying underneath that little edge?

what i did was get a metal putty knife and shoved it in there and just pried on it for a while in sections, worked pretty well

Laynlow77 needs to chime in, he can help.
im assuming these are chevy lights. i usually do 200 for 10 or so minutes. then score everything real well with a exacto knife. then its just a matter of prying them apart. its not as easy as it looks, but they will come apart. just keep em warm and be patient.
