Default clear parking lamps

I picked up some clear parking lamps today while at Checker(part # 3157LL $3.50 for the pair). Here'* a couple of pics. Now I know what you're going to say next..."clear them corners!!" But I don't own a dremel so I see myself really screwing that up!

If you want, you can open the corner llenses with a hacksaw too. That'* how I did mine. I got one of those wierd handles that make it look kinda like a keyhole saw. I'll see if I can find a pic and edit this.

You don't need a dremel. Just warm it up with HOT water, and use a flathead screwdriver slowly. Be VERY VERY SLOW.... And go at the glue itself.

I'm gonna say it, "Clear them corners!!"

I don't own a dremel, either, and I used a hair dryer and went over the back side very slowly all around over and over. Spent about 15 to 20 minutes just heating that backside, where the glue is only. Then it just popped right apart!!...
