Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid
I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus Sedan, and from what I can tell, the lenses and covers are pretty tricky to remove. A quick, inexpensive alternative is to sand and polish the lenses. I first attempted this with no experience whatsoever and it was surprisingly easy.
All you need to do is pick up a small variety of sandpaper ranging from 600-grit to 2000- or higher grit. There is a specific type of paper called Crocus Cloth that also works remarkably well when used in place of the higher grit papers. You may also want to pick up a bottle of headlight lens restorer. They are all reasonably inexpensive, and I have had quite a bit of success with this one.
Anyway, to sand and polish, simply rinse the lenses with water, and wipe away any dirt and debris. Then begin with the 600-grit paper, and sand the entire lens, focusing on the worse sections until the entire surface has the same 600 grit scratching. Keep the lens wet and move up to a higher grit such as 800 or 1000. repeat the process and then continue progressing to higher grits, finishing with 2000 or Crocus Cloth. At this point, the lenses should be looking fairly clear, with minuscule scratching from the high-grit paper. Then apply a small amount of lens restorer and rub it in a circular motion to remove the last of the visible wear marks.
As I said, I have had quite a bit of success with this, and it is a very inexpensive alternative to replacing the lenses altogether. Best of luck to you.
