did you take any of the original black goop off the headlight before you put your own sealant on?

i have never used anything other than what'* there, havent had any leaks

Agree with Haro... I've watched a few of these be done... Use a hair dryer (as hot as you can get it) or better yet, a heat gun ... carefully pry apart lens, take out the amber, hurry up and slap the lens back together again... No extra sealant used, IIRC.

well the one thats leaking was the first one i did(before i saw the post aboot the hair dryer/oven trick). i took a couple chunks of tar out. im putting the clear windshield flowable silicone on the outside seam, it can be peeled off if i need to take it apart again. theres not much of a leak, ill probly just need to put a few globs on tomorrow.

I tried the hairdryer when I went to do both my headlights and taillights and I ended up sitting there for 35 minutes, and nothing happened... maybe my hairdryer sucks? I was too scared to put the in the oven, so I will wait until I can find somebody that knows what they are doing.
