    2 screws on top and to at the back on the bottom bit hard to see but you only need to loosen them not take them right out

    If you're going to split them try the Joey Mod guide on A4Mods.com.

    I did mine over the winter and I found pouring washing up liquid in with some really hot water (not boiling) and give them a right good shake loosens majority of the **** off

    mine was really bad the water was black! on the plus side I could see after I did it!

    Hi

    Done the headlight cleaning thing
    and sealed all up and back on car
    it just seems to mist up every time I turn them on now
    what to do !!! I've taken the back off and blown it with the hair
    dryer and it's ok ... Then I go for a drive with them on and
    it mists up again
