I heated the housing up and just pressed the lens back on. The clips hold the lens on securely, while some of the adhesive helps with the rest. In the 10K miles I've had the light installed, I haven't noticed much (if any) dust accumulate inside the lens or any moisture problems. Plus, doing it this way makes it MUCH easier to take apart in the future if the need arises!
