lens exchange process.

as the title states, i bought a replacement headlight off a member here but once i got it open the lens is shot so i have to replace the lens cover with new one.. i have watched a couple of youtube videos and they are just cutting it off.. i dont think thats the proper way to due this... can someone give me some tips on how to accomplish this.. i think the lens just needs to be heated up in an oven for 20 mins at 195 degrees and the lens should just pull off.. Hell what due i know my idea might just melt the whole damn internals..
