NEED JUST THE LENSES FOR MB',, 2003 320M LIGHTS ARE FINE , BOTH LENSES ARE HAZY AND BAD


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

Need to clean front lights lens - how do you take off the lens?


The front headlight "lens" is part of the headlight assembly. If the exterior of the lens is what you need to clean because it is oxidized or pitted, then you have at least 2 options:

1) replace the assembly - you can buy them on the internet for about $70 a pair. There are youtube videos that show how to replace them. It is a job for almost any skill level. Here is one youtube video I watched before replacing my headlights.

2) Buff the lens using one of the headlight polishing kits you can buy at Autozone or Walmart. Kits are about $20. I polished my headlights and they looked great, but re-oxidized quickly.I found replacing them was a better long-term option. There are also youtube videos showing you how to do this.

Condensation inside headlight


The problem is caused by the plastic ultrasonic seam welds of the lens to the body of the headlight leaking, there is no correction for this other than replacing the headlight assembly, this is very common.

How do you replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
  • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
  • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
  • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
  • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
  • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
  • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
  • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
  • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
  • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
  • Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

Glad to be of help!!!

A bird flew into my headlight and broke it. There is a hole in it but the light still seems to be working. Can I just replace the cover or does the whole headlight need to be replaced. How much does it...


You cannot just replace the headlight lens. The headlight is an assembly and the entire assembly must be replaced. You can get one on the internet at many sites. You may want to replace them both if the lens has become cloudy and hazy or your vehicle will look odd with one shiny clean lens and one cloudy lens. They are not that expensive on this sire at $42.

I don't know how to take off the head light lens cover on my nissan maxiuma


Probably not a lens cover at all. It's just a 1 piece plastic headlight. It you are wanting to replace a bulb , they go in from the back . Open the hood and you should be able to see where the wires to the bulb go in the back of the headlight.

How can I replace or clean my headlight globe of a 1998 Galant


Headlight globe, meaning the inside of the headlight? If thats what you mean, only way to do it, is to take the lens off, and in order to do that, you need to take out the headlight, take off the rubber backings and take out the light bulbs. Then preheat your oven to 210 degrees, stick your light in there for 10 minutes, and pry apart the lens, since the glue will melt. Dont forget to undo the clips that also hold the lens to the housing. After you pry off the lens, clean or whatever you need to do. Then reseat the lens and hook the clips, then back in the oven it goes for 10 mins. Then hold pressure on the lens untill glue hardens.

Hope that helps.

They will not have or sell replacement globes, it will come with the whole headlight.
