I think someone might have suggested using a hair dryer to heat it up.

good idea, but i dont have one here. ill try to borrow one to do the other one. i think it was an even bigger pain to put it back together/put the clips in. i put some windshield silicone in the gaps, im letting it dry now. i hope the fingerprints i got on it will come off. thanks for the suggestions, guys.

i think ill try the hair dryer first, then mebe that. the one i finished looks good. the "chrome" bulb(which lights up amber) is darker. i hope its not too dark. I got pilot ones. i heard they were darker, so i ordered APC ones(better reviews) and was told they were discontinued
