There is a kit you can buy at walmart which lays a new layer of resin in the lens, which clears it up come. Is does work. It is not as good as new, but better to spend $20 than $250.

When i start my truck daylights come on and work great when i turn on my headlights it stays on daylight they do not get any brighter i checked my high beams and they work fine

The light switch doesn't make them get brighter. Your lights are working fine. If it seems dim to you. Look at the light lens. If they are plastic, they can be sanded( 1000 grit sand paper) and polished back out. This helps, but if the lens is to yellowed or crazed, it won't help.

Remove haze inside headlights 2003 buick century

Are you sure it is inside? I don't think the assemblies can be dismantled, since they are a sealed unit. I don't know of any that can be taken apart, so a problem on the inside of the lens would require replacement. But any store with an auto shelf or section stocks headlight lens polishing kits for cleaning the outside of the lens or assembly and bringing them back to new condition.

Need to clean front lights lens - how do you take off the lens?

The front headlight "lens" is part of the headlight assembly. If the exterior of the lens is what you need to clean because it is oxidized or pitted, then you have at least 2 options:

1) replace the assembly - you can buy them on the internet for about $70 a pair. There are youtube videos that show how to replace them. It is a job for almost any skill level. Here is one youtube video I watched before replacing my headlights.

2) Buff the lens using one of the headlight polishing kits you can buy at Autozone or Walmart. Kits are about $20. I polished my headlights and they looked great, but re-oxidized quickly.I found replacing them was a better long-term option. There are also youtube videos showing you how to do this.

Crazed headlights. Want to replace with new Headlights. How do take out old assembly?

you can buff out the head lights instead of replacing them. Get a sheet of 1000 grit sandpaper, 2000 grit sandpaper and some deadlight polish. masking tape off the paint in the area around the light. wet sand the headlight with the 1000 grit, follow up with 2000 grit, and finally buff with headlight polish. You should be good for 2 years.
