How to separate my from headlights?

I've been working on the headlight mod today. i finished the corners already but i literally tried everything but couldn't get my headlights to separate. i put them in the oven at 170 for 5 minutes. after that i tried 225 degrees for 10 minutes; still couldn't separate em. for a couple hours now I've been squirting silicon-remover. i think I'm done for the night but any ideas on how to separate these? I'm starting to contemplate using a heat gun but I'm really afraid thats gonna melt the headlight. any ideas anyone?????

For 01-2010 lights I bake at 265 for 7 min each. Usually have to put them In for another 2-3 while opening as the sealant cools

ok i'll probably try that. i really wasnt expecting them to be this difficult especially cause the corners popped right open. if this doesn't work should i break out the heat gun?
