Are you talking about spliting the headlights in 2 so your can install the led strip on the inside?

no i mean take out the caps of the headlight (i might not explain it well but it is the cover that covers the headlight if you look straight to the front of the car) so i can install it on the edge of the headlight

Maybe I'm not fully understanding (caps?) Can you post a pic and point to what you are talking about caps? Only caps I am aware of are located on the backside of the headlight. Sorry for the confusion I'm just trying to help you out :)
Thanks Justin

Dremel, Sawzall, silicone more silicone. Go to the dealers parts shop for new housings.

Don't do it! You've got brand new car enjoy it for a while.

fxeliminate: jdgorsky is correct the only way to open up the headlight is to either over bake it to soften the silicone glue so you can crack open the headlight. Or you can use a dremel but highly advise you not to do because your cutting it open vs: taking it apart just like it was put together. I personally wouldn't mess with it :) but thats up to you.
