Well, not trying to be Captain Obvious here, buuuuuuut...

a) Try harder. If it "won't come off" you need to find a way to get it off. I mean, the lens has to come off, right? This is like saying "I can't get my doors open. How can I remove my seats?"

b) This section is for car detailing info. You should probably post C3 tech questions in the C3 section.

The rubber seal is probably stuck. Pull harder.
