They're glued on with some sort of weathertite sealant, as well as held on with the clips all the way around the headlamp bucket (on the headlamps at least), I could not get it to separate without breaking the lens.

My advice (what we do) is to just get one of the headlamp polishing kits and polish the lenses with the whole thing assembled. Either take them out of the car complete, or put a few layers of masking tape around the bumper / grille trim so you don't scratch it up with the abrasive.

Best,
Drew
