They are now back together; I got to wait an hour or so before I put them back in.

On another note I just finished reading this entire thread and I think I have something meaningful to add. I t seems that some of you are have a great deal of difficulty getting your lights apart, I to had great difficulty getting the first one apart. But then it only took me one heating at 220 to get the second one apart and unlike most of the people that have posted there results I will tell you how to get them apart with great speed.

Firstly more then 220 degrees is not needed. Leave it in for 15 minutes at 220 and when you take it out start prying it from the top middle to the inside point. Pry hard until you can pop open just the inside point of the light, then simply grab it on those to parts front and back and pull that biatch open!

I hope that this will make it easier for those attempting this mod then it was for me.

sorry to bring this back up, but i'll be doing this in the next few days to my '01.
