What happens is the plastic lenses on the headlights break down over time from the elements and turn them yellow. The lens restoration kits only work for about 6 months and the problem comes back.
The only permanent fix is to replace the lights.Here's a video that will show you how to replace them.">

I've used white buffing compound mixed 50/50 with cheap toothpaste on a soft rag and have usually had fairly good results...try that.

The lincoln LS had the same problems, and the lens was held to the headlight assembly with a sticky glue.

How do you get the headlight covers off so you can clean them build up on inside and they look like they are gluded together


Hello cafolsims195: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The head light lamp is a sealed unit. There is no way to open the com posit lamp and clean it. There are people who can polish the outer lens. This will help clean the lens for a while but they will fade again. The dull tarnished film will develop on all head lamp lenses. You can either find a shop tho polish the lenses on your vehicle or purchase new ones and have them installed. Short term having them polished is cheaper. But they will still be some what dull. This will however vastly improve the light brightness at night. Should you need more help please just ask. Please rate the information furnished. This will tell me is was useful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
