Hi all,
I am just wondering, which would be the best method to open a set of EF Tail lights, without damaging them?

What would give the best results between using an oven, a heatgun, and a dremel?

Any input would be appreciated
Chris

Try giving data_mine a PM. Pretty sure he did this to a set to fit LED's.

Use a heat gun and a lot of patience You will then need a good epoxy{similar to araldite} to glue back together
