156 headlight seperation

Hi there,

I'm thinking of painting my headlights soon like the gta ones.
Can anyone enlighten me on the best method to seperate the light lens from the lamp unit. I understand the lights will come out just by removing the side bumper fixings to w/arch to gain access rather than taking bumper off completely

I used a screwdriver to seperate my headlights. Took a few mins to do both of them.

Stanley knife & screwdriver plus time (ie take it gently) for mine.

Some people heat them up in the oven, but I didn't fancy that idea.

Re: 156 headlight seperation

Mine took a lot of persuasion to separate, a knife, screwdriver and wide flat scrapper and they were opened eventually, just take your time and be careful.
