Has anyone successfully separated the two halves of the headlamp assembly?
I have opened up car headlamps before by baking them in the oven at a low temp to soften the sealant used. I was going to try this on my XB lamps but noticed it is sealed with a silicone sealant. Auto lamps are sealed with a sealant that remains pliable and heat makes it softer.
I cleared the tabs and pulled with all my might with no luck. If I pry on it I will chowder up the edges that will be visible on my build.
Any tips? Anyone done this successfully with out effing up the housing?

What are you trying to do once you have the housings open?

The early versions for the R were just held together with screws and came right apart
