Yep...take the headlight off and bake the headlight at 200degrees for 20mins. You will be able to take it apart after that and then fix the orb

Hi stupid,

Nah, its literally taking out your headlight assembly and shoving it in your oven to melt the adhesive a little so you can take the front cover off your light. My headlight covers are only held on with clips so I lucked out when I installed my DDEs. There should be instructions on how to bake your headlights somewhere in this forum.
