Question Frustrated..

So I have been trying to clear some headlights and broke 2 damn pairs of them.. I still want them cleared but I am just getting to the point where I'm just going to say eff it.. Now if someone could help me out by clearing me a pair, I will happily pay you cause I am done just wasting my time, money, and peace of mind on them.. Lol

Its quite easy once you get the headlight off. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. put the headlights in for 10 minutes or until the sealant is hot. Gently pry the headlight apart and remove the orange lens. Then quickly put it backtogether while the sealant is still hot and hold together till its stuck like that. If the stock sealant doesnt work you can just pick up some RTV sealant and clamp it together. Let it all dry for a while before putting back in so it doesnt leak.
