    This is fairly easy to do however you have to remove the grille and the grille clips can be a pain. there is a 10mm bolt down low that is reachable through the wheel-well. Then I think there are two top bolts to remove.

    The following video should be able to guide you through the process.

    re-reading the post/thread title, I don't think I answered your question. You are obviously asking about the lens and not headlight removal from the truck, sorry about that.

    Based on experience with the NBS headlights, I don't recommend the oven method. I've personally found it just makes the plastic warm and annoying to handle ... for what little it helps with the adhesive. Now a heat gun is a different story and I do use one of those while working the material in localized areas.
