If you know how to pull the headlights out, there's 2 ways, baking it, or breaking that actual amber piece.

If baking, right about 200 degrees on the oven and let the headlamp sit in there for like 3-5 minutes, and check to see if you can pull it apart. If not, let it sit for another 3 minutes....Pull lamp apart and pull out amber piece. Reseal and put back together, rebake.

If using the break method. You can use a screwdriver and a piece of cloth so you don't scratch the inside too bad, and lightly hit it with a hammer until it breaks. Repeat with other side. Use compressed air to get the smaller bits of amber plastic out.

OR, you can get a hook tool and pry at the amber pieces....

use a lot of butter knives. they help out a lot poppin them tabs, you'll know what i'm talking about.
yeah that is method i used. It only took me like a min to take them apart. It just seem pointless to put them in the oven when they are only held by tablets

anyone have any suggestion for led bulbs that would show up red in the day time not pink? I'm using the 18 bulb led bulb for my clear tail lights and the output sucks in the day but at night it is pretty nice looking.

ebay...i can't remember who I got mine from though...they look awsome both day and night...

One reason for baking the tails was not to break the tabs or the clear lens, but that was before th bunch of butter knives method came about
