I have a 01 Cougar as have to remove the driver side headlight cover (clear plastic cover on the outside) to clean out moisture and hopefully fix the sealing problem..Anybody done this before?

I don't think it'll let me post the actual link due to the way the site is set up......just click "how to's" then click "exterior" then click "paint headlights" just use the part that envolves cracking the headlights open........

So basically you have to remove the 6-8 clips, then remove the seal, and then slowly and gentle remove the plastic outside cover? Is this correct?

Pop off the clips, remove the black weatherstripping slowly, and then pry the headlights apart with whatever you have. When you go to put them back together, take out all of the old silicone, slather tons of fresh silicon all over, and then seal them tightly, hold them together for a while then let them dry 24 hours.
