Snook321, For some reason all Ford Headlights fog up, if you pry the lense off you chance breaking it. the best thing to do is replace them with aftermarket headlights. You can get them off ebay or from factory outlets online, I use they are reasonable with pricing. Good luck with your lights

The lens is not sold separately, you must replace the whole assembly. This assumes you are talking about the headlight lens.

How do you remove the headlight lense cover on a 2001 Century to be able to clean the inside surface?

You cannot remove the lense. it is factory sealed. only access inside is by removing bulb from rear of the lamp assembly. Your problem is probably a degraded hazy lense and not the inside. have lenses cleaned by a detailer or shop that can do a lense restoration.
Good luck

Need to clean headlight plastic covers on 99 Toyota Avalon...covers filthy, improper lighting when on headlights on. How do we disassemble?

These covers can be clarified ON the car. I recommend Blue Magic headlight lense restorer. It is a cream and applies just like polish, use cotton NO paper towels, or synthetics. You may have to apply more than once to completely remove the pitting as yours seem to be very bad, however do NOT try to do the whole lense at once, the trick is small circles on a small area at a time. Wipe with a COTTON towel/rag to remove the residue, then polish with a clean cotton towel to finish. There are other brands that do the same thing, which I have tried. These products are available at Autozone, Advanced Auto, O'Reillys, and Pep Boys, for about $10-$15. I hope I've answered your question. Do not remove the lenses from the headlight assembly as this will cause the need to replace the entire unit. Thank you for trusting FixYa to help get you going!

Change headlights and clean inside the lens

you cant really get inside of the lenses because they are glued together and usually break when you try to disassemble them. the lights should just turn slightly to the left and pull right out no special tools required.
