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

i had to pull and pry mine apart, i didnt want to leave them in to long and risk melting them. I also used a flat head screwdriver to help with prying them apart.

Yeah he sat there "perched" on the chair the entire time it was in there. I've never seen him give the oven that much attention!

Mine are next up, this weekend. YAY :D

YOU ARE SOLEY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MODS/WORK/ALTERATIONS, THAT YOU DO/PERFORM ON YOURS/HIS/HER PROPERTY.
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.
