If you were to abuse them in the oven you would want the lowest heat, I would recommend gas mark 3 as a maximum...

You just need enough heat to break the bonds of the glue, but not warp the rest of the headlight.

Start off on 1, then take it out after a while, try seperate, if it doesnt, pop it in at 1.5 / 2 (depends how hot the light assembly feels!) keep going in increments but I wouldnt really think anything above 3 would be safe to not melt it!

Have something to contribute?

to be honest the led strips are fragile for one and secondly they dont take heat well and insie that lens will get pretty hot i dont personally think they would last long thats why most led strips fitted are to the exterior of the light on the very bottom lip it would be a long process splitting the light etc just to have the vibration and heat destroy the leds within a month
