We put the headlight on small boxes so the hot air will be blown under the headlight, not only on one side. 0:09 In this case we use a 500W heatgun for 15 minutes. 0:14 Start to pry the headlight. In this case it is perma-sealed, so the seal doesn't really get soft, you will need to cut the sealing with the screw driver. 0:37 After working a couple of minutes the headlight housing cools down, heat it up again for a few minutes. 0:40 Work with patience and not too much force. This headlight took us 20 to 30 minutes to open properly. 1:04 Cut the remaining permaseal off the headlight lens using a sharp knife. 1:10 Scrape the remainign permaseal out of the headlight channel using a flathead screw driver. 1:18 Remove the bulb glare cap. 1:34 To mount the Bi-xenon projector, break the glare cap holder away. 2:05 Remove the bulb clip holder from the projector. 2:10 Mount the Mini Gatling Gun shroud with the 4 supplied screws. 2:19 Remove the black plug from the solenoid wires. 2:21 Insert the wires through the glare cap opening. 2:24 Place the rubber ring on the Mini H1 projector shaft.
