You don't have to remove them, use a buffing compound onthe lenses with plenty of elbow grease.

I have aticking sound on the driving side of a 1997 lincoln towncar


Although you did not mention the mileage of the car, here are some ideas.
Is the motor oil clean, and has it been changed regularly? (We are hoping it is not sludged up and dirty.)
Dirty oil can cause clogging of oil lines and hence ticking sounds.
If it is clean and has been regularly changed, try a mechanic's stethoscope to find the source of the sound.
Such stethoscope is a really long screwdriver. ( 18 to 24 inches).
You put the handle end to your ear and the tip on the valve covers to try to determine where the ticking is coming from.
First and easiest attempt would be to add an engine oil additive to stop the sound.
You could use a thin additive like "Rislone" or "Lucas", or a thick additive like "STP".
I have used these, and they worked for me.
I they do not help in a week or so, you may need to remove the valve cover and try to pin-point the problem.
God bless your efforts.

2001 avalon plastic headlight covers


The headlights are a sealed assembly; the plastic covers cannot be removed for cleaning. Although there are several methods for "defogging" the plastic lenses, there is no long-term satisfactory solution short of replacement

Location of horn on 2012 Hyundai tucson


The Horn is under the hood just remove the screws holding the radiator cover, I don't think it's necessary to remove all of them, just the drivers side, enough to be able to remove the headlight assembly. Then there's 3 bolts holding the headlight assembly, on top 1-10mm, & 1-12mm they are right on top, & quite visible, next underneath there is another 10mm bolt about the middle, in sideways, (check pix) just remove these, and the headlight elect plug (push down on the back of the plug clip to release) now, just sort of jostle the headlight back, & forward (but forward a bit more) while lifting it, and pulling back the loose radiator cover to clear, and it should come right out

Can the factory headlight lens covers on a 2001 Mercury Cougar be removed and cleaned ? I can remove the entire healight assembly and change the bulbs, but the inside of the healight cover is dirty and...


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

One of my headlight is foggy and dirty on the inside is there a way to take the headlights out and clean them?


Nope...they are a sealed beam type and if it is foggy or has dew in it the seal is bad. You could remove the headlight assembly and wash it out but you will have it happen again.

I have dirty headlight covers and want to remove them to see if they can be cleaned. I have a 2001 Impala


Novus products worked for me. There are three strengths. No. 1 is a general
spray cleaner. No. 2 is a fine scratch remover that requires some elbow grease.
I find rinsing it as I work it in helps speed up the process. The yellowing and
small scratches are caused by ozone and sand blowing in the air. This product
won't make it factory new but it will give a much better cleaning than any other
product I've found. I've saved many friend's the expense of changing their
headlights.
Don't use windex or dishsoap on headlight plastic. They have ammonia in them
and causes microsopic pitting and fractures in clear plastic.
I bought my Novus products on line, saved gas running around trying to find it.

1999 plymouth grand voyager headlight.. How does one see the road at night when the liht covers can't be cleaned to let out the light?


Replace the headlight assembly. Aftermarket headlight assemblies sell for about $60 to $70. Upgrade your bulbs to brighter, whiter lamps to increase visibility.

Difficulty changing low-beam headlight


Disconnect the connector.
  1. Remove the socket cover. CAUTION: Do not touch the surface of the bulb with hands or dirty gloves as the bulb may pop after a short time. If the surface does become dirty, clean it with alcohol or thinner, and let it dry thoroughly before installing.
  2. Release the bulb securing spring, and remove the bulb.
  3. Replace the bulb, and connect the connector securely
