Drop me a PM if interested.
I did some testing on a broken one just to see if the lens could be removed. No way. Mine had a broken lens, and I could not even get pieces out without further breaking them, and even then most of the little glass flange that goes into the plastic was left there. It is a VERY tenacious, probably urethane, adhesive. The glass has a relatively thin flange that goes into a slot in the plastic housing, and that is filled with the very strong, flexible adhesive. It is truly a "one piece" assembly.
