Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse
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

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.
