The last comment is likely the best solution, given how cheap replacement headlight assemblies are for jeeps (check internet, not dealership).

I have, however, repaired these in the past by removing them, taking out all bulbs, lay them face down, fill will water, and see if you can find the leak. If you can, use a tube of silicon RTV or mix up some epoxy and fix the leak. Or just silicon all of the seams. Dump out the water first and dry the interior by blowing in hot air from a hair dryer. A lot of work to save $35, but if you have more time than money it's an option.

The headlight lens are plastic welded to form one solid unit, if they are fogged up inside they are leaking and need to be repaced.

How do i remove my front light cover to clean the inside

The front cover is mounted in a way that you cannot remove it. If you are trying to clear the yellow, polish the outside with an appropriate polish. The damage is usually done to the outside. Ifnyou have done this and it is still yellow, then you need to replace the lights.

How do you change front headlight for a Chevy 2002 s-10

Open the hood of the truck and just inside the front frame rail behind the lights there will be 2 clips kind of sticking up. Just pull them up and out. The composite head light fixture can now be pulled out through the front. You must lift slightly, at least on the units with embedded fog lamps since there are 2 vertical tabs in addition to the stubs which you released when you removed the clips. You will have to press the safety catch and turn the lamp base to get to the lamp.DO NOT TOUCH THE LIGHT BULB OR LAMP WITH YOUR BARE HANDS! THE OIL FROM YOUR SKIN CAN CAUSE THE HALOGEN LAMP TO EXPLODE! THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT THESE LAMPS GENERATE A LOT OF HEAT so use clean gloves or a clean rag to change the actual lamp then re insert the lamp base into the composite housing. Push the whole fixture back into its bay and replace the retaining clips. Getting them back in is a little more tricky than getting them out but make sure that you get both retaining clips back in right or your head lights will not be pointing in the correct direction and could also come loose.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

Pulled off front head lights to clean moisture out?

Those headlamp assemblies cannot be taken apart or cleaned out inside. You can use a hair dryer and dry them out that way (remove bulbs first) The seals arround the assembly are leaking allowing water/moisture to get inside. The proper fix is to replace the assemblies (very expensive). I suppose you want to try to fix them yourself. You might be able to if you can find 'where' the seal(s) are weak/leaking (or if the assembly is cracked somewhere). Once you do, you could use silicon sealant or RTV and see if that works.

How do i change my front lights on my durango. The screws on front are stripped and my allen wrenches wont work.can i go from inside?

if your trying to change the bulbs you have to do it from inside by twisting the plug counter clockwise and pulling. however if your taking the whole headlight assembly out yur still messin around with the wrong screws, those allen screws are for headlight adjustment only,, ther are two bolts and a peg, the first bolt is sandwiched between the bumper and head light, the second is behind the head light and can be acessed by lifting the hood so the grille is out of the way and reaching in from the side they are 10mm bolts good luck
