As far as I know that doesn't come off.

I could be wrong but that is my first guess.

The reflector pops out, its held in place by 3 clips, its like the headlamp housing clips, its a nipple that fits into a clip on the back of the housing, when I pulled mine off to install the projectors I used a plastic dash tool, the larger one and pulled it off the housing. That reflector is pretty solid at the rear of it, just still got to be careful of the front sides area. This is what it looks like from behind the reflector

I used a plastic pry tool, to push off the housing using the back of the reflector, and pulling with my hand, it will pop out, just watch the front of the reflector as its thin.

The larger one is what I used, but all you need is something to help lift as you pull, you could probably use other tools, I am just telling you what I did and used

Are you planning on painting the reflectors as well or just the bowls?
