You can pick up polishing compound from an auto parts store, removing the lenses is put of the question as they are sealed units, a little elbow grease and sealer then you're all set

SOURCE: 1999 pontiac grand am headlight glass is foggy-how do I clean it?

You can use a product called goof off or a bug abd tar remover to get the area clean. To change your light bulb you can open your hood and between the radiator and the front end assembly see the back of the light socket. Turn it to the right and it should release. Make sure when you replace the new bulb not to touch the bulb in anyway with grease from your hand or dirt this will case the halogen bulb to burn out. So once you have replaced this just repeat the steps to reinstall.

SOURCE: removal of headlight assembly

You cannot clean the insides. The are sealed if you attempt to remove them, which is a big job in itself, you run the risk of damaging the seal and allowing water and moisture to get inside which could lead to more problems. What I would recommend is to visit your local parts store, and pick up a bottle of Maguire's cleaner wax. Apply some of the wax directly on the headlamps and with a terry cloth or a microfiber cloth rub the wax in real good with a little bit of pressure. Allow the wax to cure and then polish it off with a dry part of the towel. Generally these headlamps oxidize and causes this foggy or cloudy appearance.

It is very easy to do this. Do not get intimidated. All you need is a simple socket set and a little bit of time. After putting your hood up, take a look at where your light assembly is on each side. You should see a bolt holding down the plastic at the top and I believe one toward the bottom near the wheel well area. Simply take those bolts out and the assembly should come out fairly easy. The actual bulb hooked to the wire should come out of the headlight assembly fairly easy also. You simply turn them to the left and you will get to a point where they will slip out of the grooves. They may not want to turn at first from being there so long, but they will come out. Get a little confidence in yourself and you can do it. This is one job I wouldn't pay a auto place to take care of. Hope this helps and gives you the confidence you need to do it yourself.

Most Auto Stores sell a headlight solution that cleans the fogginess of your headlight. Assuming your headlight looks dirty and cloudy as would a pool, a simple solution is to pick up the cleaner at any auto place. That is a lot cheaper than buying a new headlight.

Rubbing compound will buff off the oxidation that effects (clouds) the outside surface of plastics. Some waxes have a little abrasive that will help do this. Toothpaste will also work mixed with wax. Use some muscle and buff til it is dry to restore the plastic gloss. Shops use an electric or pneumatic buffer with a wool or foam pad and extra fine rubbing compound.

Remove headlight cover


The headlight cover is not really a cover...it is the assembly which needs to be removed completely from the car to access the bulb hole that is the only access to the interior surfaces of the assembly. Lots of screws and awkward positions to get it out. Best bet, leave it alone or pull the bulb socket and use very long q-tips to clean out moisture!

My headlights keep burning out, both bright and normal. They seem to be shorting out and it's getting expensive. Right after I replace one, the other one burns out! My lens covers are also no longer clear,...


If both lenses are foggy chances are your bulbs are acting like fuses and when wet/damp blowing,reseal with silicon,or replace lenses.(when lenses get foggy it is also a sign that the chrome has oxidised.)

Foggy headlight lens replace driver door mirror


Foggy headlight lens is from water ingress and gets trapped in there, the easiest way for you is to unscrew the back of the headlight assembly and get a hair drier and just dry out the head light, it may come back after a few rains,, other wise undo the screw holding the headlight unit, disconect wires and remove unit, I have the submerged unit into water watching where air bubbles come from then apply a small bead of water proof flexible sealand or silastic around the edge where the cover and lense meet, Dont try to take the lense off you will break something. Dry out completly and use hair dryer agin on low setting to make sure all moisture is gone and reassemble back onto vehicle....

I need to clean or replace the headlight globe


your headlights are leaking water inside, and with the heat from the bulbs it condenses into fogginess,let me give an idea! if you have access to the bottom of the light, drill a hole that the water can drain.
that might work.!
