It seems like a read about a guy that broke the reflector out in pieces. Have you seen that yet? I think he pulled the pieces out through the bulb hole.

Just bake it in the oven at 250 for a little while until you can pry the headlight apart. BE CAREFUL! Dont forget to have some silicon handy to put it back together. Or you can wait aweek and Ill have an imagestation tutorial on how to do it.

You might want to check your state vehicle code first. In most states the yellow reflectors are required. There's no sense in getting a ticket for such a minor thing.

In order to aviod this, Im going to try and get that silver reflector tape they put on bikes and construction workers. It will still be "clear" and hopefully the cops will leave me alone. [^]
