How do I get to and clean the inside of both headlamp glasses because my car failed the MOT because the inside of the headlamp units are very dirty. Not the reflector but the front plastic cover.


NORMALLY THE ISSUE IS WITH THE OUTSIDE OF THE PLASTIC COVER. THEY CAN BE CLEANED WITH HEADLIGHT CLEANING KITS FROM ANY PARTS STORE.IF THE PROBLEM IS REALLY ON THE INSIDE THEN REPLACEMENT IS NEEDED

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!

How do you clean headlights on a 2002 chevy impala?


They can be adjusted up/down. see picture for adjustment screw.
The headlight housing can leak and condensation will form inside and maybe stain the inside. It is very difficult to take the housing apart... do go there.
It's more likely that that outside of the headlight is discolored with age. There are kits available at parts stores to recondition the outside of the lense.
The bulbs will also get dimmer with age. I recommend Philips VisionPlus; 9006 for low beams. You can get a pair on Ebay for $20 or less. They'll be $40-50/pr at the parts store.
This headlight is the easiest I have ever seen to remove. The headlamp can be easily removed by pulling up on the two white strips about a half inch (??). Then wiggle and pull the assembly straight forward.

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

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.

Cannot figure out how to remove headlight assembly.


The dirt is not inside them, Its a haze on the outside of light, They make a rubbing compound and small buff kit to fix this, its like 25 bucks at the zone

Headlights are Dim


You certainly can try taking out the hdlt. and make sure the bulbs are out. You can rinse the headlight out with water and then let dry. Usually when you put the light back in the heat will actually dry the rest of it out. You can also you some buffing compound and clean the outside of it.
