    You can split them?? Just run a heat gun or a hairdryer around and heat the glue up.. Just be patient and they come apart fine


    you have to take the bumper off to get the headlights out.


    Then just reseal them with plenty of slicone

    Might be worth EK9'ing them while you have them split

    You shouldn't have to take them apart to clean them. If you have a good polisher you can sort them or if not you can wet sand them.
