From what Ive read on here, members that have tried baking ended up cutting the housings. Said it was a battle to open them up by just using the oven/heat gun method. So I went on to google university and found people saying just to cut the permaseal headlights open.Did you bake the headlight in the oven? Unless the Cruze headlights are special, this has always been the way I've known to pull the headlights apart (did that to paint the housings in my Cobalt).
Everyone says theres lots of threads.... which there is with no real info. The aftermarket housings suck, the lenses dont handle our Canadian winters...theres been several threads aboot the cruze housings
general consensus is just buy aftermarket housings and bake those ones
