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.

    Just a recommendation, but there are a series of lights that were available from GE called the "Cool Blue" series. Contrary to popular belief, they are not the type that give off a blue colored light (annoying to many drivers) rather they have a shift toward the blue spectrum which is barely visible to the oncoming driver, but gives a brighter light which is also better in rain, and may be helpful to drivers with poor night vision as well! I used to recommend these to many of my customers when I was parts pro for Advance stores in my area. I also use them in my own vehicles. Compared to other bulbs with similar claims, I found these to be best. My night vision has been failing lately, but I can still see quite well on rainy nights with them!

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.
