To be honest it's a pig of a job to do. If you're not careful when you strip away the old sealant, trying to pull the glass and the headlight apart it could crack the plastic. When applying the new sealant you have to be extra careful cause you don't want to put too much (excess dripping out on the glass and plastic) or too little (it won't stick back in).. Other than that working on the car is a charm, only a couple of screws to take off the bumper and headlight.

I am hoping to wake up in the morning and see no condensation in the headlight

Thanks Mark. Yea the 156's bumper is the same. The annoying thing is the wheel arch and the plastic bits at the front there.
