Cry Like A Baby How to dis-assemble headlight?

Hi all,
Anybody tried to dis-assemble 159/Brera headlight? I got one unit for tests and I can't take it apart. I think that wind-shield adhesive is used there:
-rubber consistency
-sample don't melt even in about 200-250 deg.
-bath silicone solvent doesn't help

Any ideas, clues?

With 156 headlights you need to heat it up (a bit) and then prise it apart with a fair amount of force, I would have thought the same for the 159 (do a search in the 156 lounge as Nicky did a thread detailing how to do it)

Hey Yonash, you had any luck with this yet?

If I can source a cheap headlight in the UK I will try also as very keen on duplicating the CCFL / SMD Halo effect.
