2001 Z3 Headlight question

my buds got a "01" z3. was looking to install his angel eyes. The wiring will b easy so that wont be an issue, but we cant get the headlight assembly taken apart.


I took it out(the assembly) and took all the clips off of the glass and try to gntly pry the glass part away from the rest of the piece. Wasnt coming off.


any ideas? I didnt want to break it. He says the company he purchased it from told him it can be taken apart...but im not too sure.

so..Mr. Light man..advice?

You should try baking it so the glue/sealant is more pliable.

Yeah, I'm 90% sure you'll have to bake the headlight

I'd be careful. It's gotta be easy to get too hot and crack or break the glass.

To be serious I believe you have to use an oven, who would have thought that you can bake your own parts.
