Jeff just did his last weekend and it was pretty easy. He didn't have any troubles. What I recall is 250 degrees in the oven for 10 minutes. Something like that. Don't forget to use hot pads!

I will try to ask him later, but I make no promises. :p

BY PRECEDING THESE MOD/WORK/ALTERATIONS, YOU HAVE TAKEN FULL RESPONSIBILITY & NO OTHER PARTIES ARE LIABLE.
USE YOUR OWN DISCRETION.USE SAFTEY FIRST.



Take off the grill, bumper, headlight, wire harness, w/ appropriate tools. 10mm socket/wrench, ext. , philips & small flathead screwdriver.


I went ahead and took out the Projectors, LED, but not the HALO's (just to see how things are.)



Prepare for the oven


In the Oven, 250 F for 5-7 min. (gauge temp. & min.) Easyoff oven cleaner optional j/k I know...it's dirty.


Pull apart Lens/cover w/ your fingers. (do not use sharp object) Be patience and work it. If need be, Re-heat in the oven to soften the seal.


Clean out/off old seal.
Use clear or black waterproof/resistant silicone sealer. (original seal is Black)
Apply seal and run a good bead. Clean off excess run off w/ finger & wipe clean.



After putting the Lens/Cover back on, check the contact w/ Lens and the housing that it sit's properly. I put the housing under a couch cushion, and I added some weight to it so that the Lens/Cover will set firmly on the housing. (Cure time depend's on the product.)

Re-assemble Projectors and LED's


Put everything back as it should, and there ya go!


Hope this helps in some way.
