    Due to a mixture of alcohol, having an extension cord already at the car and having a heat gun handy i just went for it and got the drivers side done already with great results.
    Some advice for anyone trying this is DO NOT TOUCH THE HEAT GUN AFTER ITS BEEN ON AND DO NOT TOUCH THE PLASTIC AFTER HEATING IT AS YOU CAN LEAVE FINGERPRINTS AND ALSO BURN YOURSELF
