clean front light?

Assuming you mean the lens has become cloudy, you can use automotive compound and using a soft cloth gently rub the compound in a circular motion until the haze is cleared.

headlights are foggy inside how do i clean them

the fogginess is caused by oxidation on the outside. normal wear and tear.

This is what i did on my honda civic 1996- bought three sand paper 600-1500 and 2000. Bought plastic shine from autozone and some plastic gloves.

1) I cleaned it with diluted soap to get all the dirt out. Use soft cotton cloth to do this.
2) get some clean water and dip sand paper(600) and start sanding the headlight. sanding should be done in the same direction throughout. I used horizontal strokes. Don't let the sandpaper dry out.
3) clean it out with water so all the sand particles from the sanding is cleaned out.
4) start with the next grade sand paper and repeat the process till you are satisfied and the fogginess is gone.
5) clean it thoroughly with water and let it dry fully.
6) put in gloves and rub plastic shine all over the headlight and leave it to dry. Make sure it does touch the paint!! you can mask the sides to avoid that.
7) clean it with soft cotton or polishing cloth. It really works!!!

Also, stay away from direct sun while doing this. Having the hood up is helpful.
