headlight cover fell off

i think i just ran sometin over a little too hard and that cap the surrounds your headlight bulb fell off. so now its juss laying in the headlight box. so my question how do i seperate the two pieces of the box? maybe heating would do it, like putting it in the oven maybe? i didnt really notice any difference in the lighting so if its easy i may as well take the other one off. any reasons why i shouldnt?

I know you posted at the same time but read above. You dont use nightshade, use high temp paint in color of your choice. Most common choice is black. I have seen red and blue used but I think black looks the best.
