So I did a dumb.
3 weeks ago I was changing the turn signal lamps and broke one of the brackets on the front turn signal housing.
Instead of getting a replacement assembly, I opted for a quick fix and used JB Weld PlasticWeld to affix the turn signal lamp housing permanently to the headlight.
As I did this I thought "There's no way this could have any reprecussions in the future, right?"
Got into an accident and had to replace a bumper, a hood, a light assembly, and a fender, plus had to have frame work done.
Everything is now replaced/repaired except the bumper. And the JB Weld'd light assembly, which is on the OTHER side from the one that was hit.
I have a new bumper from MB, don't want to replace the light assembly if I don't have to, but I see no way to get the old light out without removing the turn signal housing.
Please help! Damage to the old bumper is OK since I have a new one but I would prefer not to hurt the fender.
And to preempt any questions about separating, I hit the absolute hell out of the entire turn signal assembly with JB Weld, removing it will destroy the whole light assembly.
Or at least make it unusable :P
