yes u can! several members on here have done it

i have seen and read the instructions but not enough to retype them here

u basically pull the light to basics ie remove the globe etc

then needs to be placed in the oven , forgot the temp and time

then u pry the lens from body

spray the bezl and stick back together with silicone :)

not melt it basically "weakens the glue" so u can gently pry them apart

Don't use the oven man. If your missus or your mum has a hair dryer put it on high and blowdry it till its hot.. then pry the clear lens off with a flat blade screwdriver. Careful getting the indicator lens out of the bezel though, theres 3 clips and the pricks break.

Same method works well on EF/EL lights too. And tail lights.

The glue used is heat sensitive. You can also avoid using silicone, by reheating the pieces (getting the glue hot again), and putting them back together. I did that on my EL tail lights, and they never leaked.

cool same grille, how does it look colour coded, you got a daytime front shot?

Thanks for the info too, will try that kinda sounds a tad bit safer
