How do i remove silicon bonding without damaging the vehicles paint?
i bought a new overhead break light for my 02 ford explorer sport trac
because it seemed like an easy, low cost upgrade that i found appealing and
However, a few years ago the truck was in an accident (rolled onto left side
and torqued the body slightly) at which time it appears that the body shop
found it necessary to silicon in the overhead break light during repairs.
I don't know if this was necessary or not, but i would like to install the new
break light. is there a bracket that this light screws into that could've been
broken, or some reason to justify siliconing in the light? if so, should i attempt
to replace the light? the screws appear to still screw in and hold fine as i
unscrewed them before finding out the light is siliconed.
If no reason why this light should be siliconed, how can i remove the silicon
without damaging the paint?
