Im unsure on the lights, but some say to seperate other lights to stick them in a 100 degree over for something like ten minutes on a wet tea towel or something and put back in for a couple more if it doesnt work and continue till it seperates. This means that you have to glue it back together later though. Im not sure how or whether this even works, but may be worth a try if ou get stuck. Either that or there may be screws or clips somewhere. Dont trust me! :P

if the inside surface of the headlight lens has got a hard buildup on it, basically theres nothing that can be done that wont destroy the lens
