If you leave it in to long it will warp it and melt it.

10 minute increments with a little cooling in between. Just pry on it a little and try to open it up. Then stick it back in for 10 minutes. Repeat till opened.

Aftermarket ones are similar the glue is not as strong as the factory glue.
those were my headlights... haha. thanks again.

Damn I wish I was brave enough to do this. Just a question, how much would it cost for someone to do it for me in black, I imagine it would be cheaper to just buy aftermarket headlights. :s
