From my exhaustive research on h/lights and the h/light casing openings issues, you can not cut, dremel, slice, bake, roast or fry them open if they are manufactured after Oct 2002.
RR is on the right track, follow his lead

Or you can do what Weasel did and buy a 2nd hand pair from a wrecker and work on those (if you don't have the correct date stamp). GL
Actually that is what got me in trouble... I saw the date code on top like that and thought I was good as it was within range. It wasn't long before I realized I had the new glue and found the date code on the back of the headlight to be several months different than the one on the top trim piece.

I am actually going soon today to get some of the RTV silicone dissolving stuff from Home Depot to try tonight... fingers crossed.
