The fogginess is caused by oxidation on the outside. normal wear and tear.

This is what i did on my honda civic 1996- bought three sand paper 600-1500 and 2000. Bought plastic shine from autozone and some plastic gloves.

1) I cleaned it with diluted soap to get all the dirt out. Use soft cotton cloth to do this.
2) get some clean water and dip sand paper(600) and start sanding the headlight. sanding should be done in the same direction throughout. I used horizontal strokes. Don't let the sandpaper dry out.
3) clean it out with water so all the sand particles from the sanding is cleaned out.
4) start with the next grade sand paper and repeat the process till you are satisfied and the fogginess is gone.
5) clean it thoroughly with water and let it dry fully.
6) put in gloves and rub plastic shine all over the headlight and leave it to dry. Make sure it does touch the paint!! you can mask the sides to avoid that.
7) clean it with soft cotton or polishing cloth. It really works!!!

Also, stay away from direct sun while doing this. Having the hood up is helpful.

Wash your headlights well using soapy water; rinse and dry. Dip a corner of your soft rag in denatured alcohol, which you can find at most paint or hardware stores. Rub the solution on your lens in small, circular motions. Repeat until your headlights lose some of their yellow hue.

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!

One of my headlight is foggy and dirty on the inside is there a way to take the headlights out and clean them?


Nope...they are a sealed beam type and if it is foggy or has dew in it the seal is bad. You could remove the headlight assembly and wash it out but you will have it happen again.

1999 taurus has foggy headlights.


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.

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.!

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.
