Hi H.J , Did mine a few weeks ago , did not need to bake them as the sealant can be cut away using a stanley blade , the hardest part was loosening the adjusting bolts , as they tend to corrode up , but with a bit of heat they will release .

Good Luck

Never got round to it, spoke to yet another person today chasing a new pair of head lights.

I got as far as getting a knackard head light out of a storage box then I made a brew....
