Help with removal of plastic wrap from inside Vland headlight casing!

Hi everyone,


I wonder if I can get your help and advice on this.


I bought a set of vland headlights for my GT86. Unfortunately one of them arrived with a piece of plastic wrap inside the casing. I've been offered a discount so I'm keen on keeping them.


What would be the easiest way to get the plastic wrap out of the light casing.


Please see the photo attached.

Many thanks.

I guess you're going to have to crack them open. Look up videos on how it's done, I'm sure that these will be similar to OEM and I'm sure you can with them.

If it's floating/loose in the case, you could try and hold a vacuum cleaner against one of the bulb mounts. See if you suck it out?

If it was me I would be insisting on a new set, is the discount worth the risk of damaging the lights if you try to take them apart?
