A hair dryer will help a little, but you will have to get a flat blade screwdriver or two and ease it apart.

You need to read this techinfo article. I've seen it done in person and you can not (repeat: CAN NOT) get this done any easier.

Toast doesn't need silicone
Toast doesn't need special tools
Give him whatever socket (probably 10mm) to get the headlight off, a hair dryer and 5 minutes later...it'* back on the car.

a 10mm wrench or socket and a flat blade screwdriver to start to pop the clips and start to separate the lense
