Headlight Broke.. :(

Just noticed that the marker cover inside the headlight fell/broke off. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

Is the only way to fix this is to take the headlight off, bake it, fix it, and put it back together? I don't see another way. Just wanted to make sure. I MIGHT could take off the headlight and get the cover to fall out.. MAYBE, but that probably wouldn't work either..

I'll be honest here - I've stared at this for about 5 minutes and I know the headlight well and I can't see wtf you're talking about. I'd just leave it unless it's impacting your headlights at night?

If you have something you can't deal with, you might want to find some of the guys that do demon eye mods since you'd need it repaired anyway. Green always looks evil lol.

Is this the issue here where the arrow is? Looks a little wonky / crooked?

Whatís funny is that I walked past the car, and was wondering how I never noticed there was a small light under the projector. And after I starred at it for 10 mins I realized that the cover fell off the small orange parking light.

Bake it and fix it and blackout them along the way. Baking them is very easy. Just seal them well after you are done. I did it 3 times now.
