    There are good tutorials for the different model years.
    To answer some of your questions (even though there are no question marks), you 'bake' them in the oven to soften the silicon adhesive so you can pull them apart. IIRC, just put your oven on the lowest setting and let them sit in there for 20 mins or so. When putting them back together, some people just stick 'em back in the oven to soften the silicon once more and push them together. There is enough on there from the factory that this usually works. I elected to add additional silicon adhesive after they were back together to assure no leaks. I'd rather spend $3 and 10 extra minutes to run a bead around the lights then have to go back and deal with leaks.
