March 14, 2006Anyone know of a way to separate the headlight bucket from the outer lense? The appear to be glued or epoxied together. Maybe I should buy another pair and experiment? There HAS to be a way to get these things apart.
March 14, 2006I'd buy a pair from the junkyard. Plenty of wrecked '05's out there already.
March 15, 2006It is common to use a high frequency vibration to actually melt the two joining surfaces and bond them together. This is how alot of modern light assemblies join the lens with the backing. Makes a stronger better tighter seam then any epoxy out there. Of course it requires the bulb be inserted from the rear but it improves bulb life because it is sealed better. I don't know if that is what Ford did on the '05 lens but if so you can forget about getting it apart this side of a dremel.
