They are sealed to the headlight housing which makes them not removeable. Usually the outside is the dullest part of it and a buffer with a polishing compund will clean it well. If on the inside there is nothing much you can do

Clean inside housing headlight

Chances are, it's pitting on the outside of the lense, not the inside. The inside probably is clean UNLESS, the rubber boot covering the holes is missing. You'd have to pull the headlight out and off the truck and try and clean through the holes the bulbs go into.

Remove headlight cover

The headlight cover is not really a 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!

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

How do I remove the headlight cover to clean the inside part of the headlight cover. It appears to be fogging making the lights seem dim.

you are talking aftermarket headligth covers? , the head lite itself cant not be taken appart, your best bet is to drill a small hole in the lower part ofthe headlight so moisture can be release, this will help but in the long run you'll need to replace it

How can i remove the corolla 2004's headlight cover to clean them from inside?

You have to heat the original sealant using a blower/hair dryer and slowly pull the cover from the base of the headlight. After you clean the glass then you have to seal it again.

1996 brake lights are out as well as headlight intermittant

For the brake lights check that no fuses are missing. Then check them all you should get a fuse tester. Go to the junk jard and get the cover if anything. For the headlights its common for moisture to get in the headlight bulb connector or harness and get corroded. Take the bulbs out and clean the connections with a wire brush or how ever you choose then put as much bulb grease as you want on the connection. This should take care it. Clean the inside of the harness too.
