Default Clearing Amber on 92-95 SSEi Tails.....

Well i got a spare Tail from the Yard, and tryed something new to take it apart without DeLaming the Tail...

What you do is...

-Bake in a oven at 200 Degrees for 20Mins or so... (put them in right when you turn on)
-Then pry up or brake off the tabs.
-Then start to pull the Light aPart starting at the skinny end "With your Hands"
Keep on working around the whole light GENTLY pulling..... (DO NOT USE A SCREW DRIVER) and also se more then one or two fingurs to pull, i used 3-4....

and slowly! they will come apart... With out Delaming them....


Im going to get things ready for my Tails on my car them im going to de a step by step wright-up on how to do this...



PICS COMING SOON...

I did it without heating, with a screwdriver... no broken tabs, no delamination.
