    hi Vignesh, how did the installer open the glass of the headlight. punto and linea headlamps are pasted with non melting sealant.

    Just use a heat gun to melt the glue and then open it

    It wont melt u have to significantly heat it and pull the glass out, its not easy like I had mentioned earlier and if done in an improper way can break/melt the plastic

    i tried a lot. i also removed some part of the glue by cutting it and tried to melt it with heat gun with 500 degrees mode for more than 15 min. its not melting at all.

    finally i went to headlight restoration expert. he too said its damn hard to open. other cars headlight glass opens in flat 10 minutes. he showed me the other sealed ones. definitely fiat uses something strange to seal the headlight on linea :(
