Hi guys,
Does someone knows how to open/separate the plastic glass of the headlight (a3 2008+ LED DRL) like if you want to change it or else. Is it only by heating and then trying to separate, because i saw that there are 3 tiney like nails* going above the glass? Do i have to remove them first.. So if someone has done it or has some pics will be perfect.
Thanks in advance.

I think you must first heat the headlight so the plastic would be more elastic to take them out... There is some more on the corner and on the downside

yea thats for sre first oyu must heat them whit heater gun but o not use on one spot you must to muve then when is hoot use a srew driver whit flat top but litle one and go araund the head light use glowes!!it will be heat,you must be quick bicouse sealnt who goes araund whill be hard after some time
when separate hadlgiht after must clean corners and hwn put back must use silicon or butil tape depends on headlight and head again to make together glas and body of head light,thit whit somthing and leave 12 to 24 hours to be shure thet they are togheter oter wise you will get water insaide...

OMG :D im definitely not doing it like with hummer.
It cannot be seen from the back (lamp hole). You are going to do it with the same lights (or alfa romeo lights because i did not understand correctly)? Like mine i posted?
