Jetta 5 TDI Headlights
« on: July 06, 2011, 17:00:09 »
I just bought my wife a 2007 Jetta TDI, I would like to do the Joey mod on the headlights, any idea how to remove the lenses?

I heard about putting them into the oven, but only seen that for the Mark 4, will this work on a Mark 5?

I  would not advise this to anyone but I did this with a Jetta 4, setting the oven to about 80 C, when it was hot I put the light in for about 1 min, this just softend the adhesive enough to pry the lens off.

My brother had to use a heat gun on his Gti 5, what a mess

I helped a buddy at work take his apart, not easy at all, there are staples, glue and screws, but the glue is a bitch to get off. Been wanting to get mine done for a while now.

I saw Gideon this weekend at a birthday party and he is doing his at the moment, he is taking pics and will sort out some sort of DIY for the forum

I will put it together once I finish everything, all I can say is that one lens that was manufactured in Mexico came off easy, the other from SA was a bitch
