    I've been wondering what the best way is for opening up the OEM fog lights- do you put them in the oven for a few minutes and pry just like the headlight lenses? And how do you seal them/what do you seal them back up with?

    One of the glare shields in my housings is bent back oddly and cuts out a lot of the light output, so I wanted to adjust it.

    It's exactly the same as headlights, and if they are real OEM fog lights, it may take a little longer, I've heard they are more difficult than replacement ones, but it is the same process. You don't need anything else to seal them back up when you're done, the original sealant will get soft again once you put them back in the oven to seal them up.

    You can paint them black while you're in there! (not the reflectors though)
