Re: how can i get more light from my 1996 lincoln mark...
Well, you can buy high intensity replacement bulbs. They don't require changing the assembly, just the bulb. Many parts stores sell them for a fairly reasonable price. You could also add driving lights if they are legal in your area.

i think you will find that the headlight is a 'sealed unit' so removal of lense is not viable ,given the age of vehicle i would expect it to be the reflector that is causing a dim beam ,search ebay for a good used replacement
The lincoln LS had the same problems, and the lens was held to the headlight assembly with a sticky glue.
To remove them, some guys were successful by warming the headlight assembly in the oven untill the glue softened up enough to be pulled apart.
Be careful if you try this, to much head and..oops I melted my headlight
I know of a couple of techniques people have used to try to clean up these headlamps and have had varying success. Even though these headlamps may not be available from Mercury; there are lots of places that still sell aftermarket headlamp assemblies for these vehicles. I just did an internet search and several places came up offering these for sale through aftermarket suppliers.
Open the hood and make sure the car and the lights are off.
Remove the plastic protective cover.There are 3 knobs,turn halfway and pull.Put aside and out of the way.
Remove the three pins that are holding the light assembly in place.These are flat rods with a little bend at the end.
Twist and un-plug the lights,now you can remove the whole lens.
The light bulbs can also be removed and replaced from this point.
Make sure all the bulbs are working before you put it back together.
