    on the Del sols you can check out Teamdelsol.com for info. the only problem on the sols is, the glass is not 100% clear, When you have a white light shinnying through, there is a nasty brown tenge.

    if you don't want to take the assembly appart. do what my friend did. take the signal bulb out, the use needle nose pliers to take the reflector off the inner part of the assembly, grab the reflector with the pliers(grap tight) then break the reflector(crush it, twist it, im not sure how he didi it, just break it) :D into pieces small enough to fit out of the socket.

    then you don't have to wait for the silicon to dry and you don't have to worry about leaks.

    oh yeah, i would take the assenbly off, it makes things easier.

    You might risk scratching the lens. Be careful if you do it that way.
