I bought a set of used lights off ebay.

Little did I know that there are two different ways they are assembled. One has a sort of gray sealant the other has black. If you have the gray sealant it is very difficult to separate the lights. The black is pretty easy so I have heard. I had the gray so it was a pain. I messed up one and did not try with the other.

Best way to do it is to remove all the fasteners and the little pressed on clips if you have them. Stick it in the oven on 250 for about 15 min then pry it off using 2 flat head screw drivers.

I used the hairdryer/heat gun if you dont feal safe with the oven just heat around the edges and same thing pry with screwdrivers i would suggest haveing some one help cause it makes it way easier and also. keep all the sealent "organized" when sepertaing it makes it way easier to re asemble. I paint mine.
