    Pop off the 4 metal clips, then heat the join with a hot air gun gently and prize apart. dont bother trying to clean the gunk off, just add to it when you re seal.

    Some people put the headlights in the oven, never done that myself though!

    EDIT:
    Re read your post, the level adjuster, wind the headlight adjusters so the chassis moved as close as possible to the bulb cover, twist the level moter till it releases, and when you have enough play it will slide out of the plastic clip.

    These plastic clips always break, be ready to look for the modded alu ones on a sticky somewhere here for sale :D
