Im sorry but the houseing is all 1 single piece. They dont come apart without breaking them. You can find lens restorer at your local Goodyear store. It works really well. You just whipe it on and rub it in. It will make them look new again.

How to clean Toyota Sera headlights


***Note, this is for Toyota Sera, not Starlet!!***

Because Toyota Sera's are both old in age & technology, there are some maintenance techniques around to help to keep them looking their best. One such technique is cleaning tired looking headlights that have clouded with age. New, basic units (no bulbs or rubber covers), cost £90+VAT from Toyota!

The lense of these headlights is plastic, unlike cars of today that are glass. Because of this they become cloudy over time, especially as these cars were first produced in 1990. This causes very dull light and can be an MOT failure

To clean them properly, they need to be taken apart. There are 5 metal clips around the unit, these need to be removed first, as well as all rubber covers on the back and bulbs. The two halves of the unit are glued together with a special adhesive, the only way to get them apart is to put them in the oven, around 130degs C, for about 10 mins. I suggest keeping your eye on them and keep checking to see if the glue has softened, as it is very easy to melt them (I know from experience)!

Once the two halves have been separated, the lens itself is in two pieces, these can be separated by removing the screw at one end and removing the inner plastic lens.

There are a couple of proven methods to clean the plastic lens,

1. Use T-cut or similar product such as Mothers Polish to remove years of ingrained dirt and cloudiness
2. Use the finest grade Wet n Dry paper with washing up liquid and water, rub in one direction gently, followed by T-cut type product.

Finally, polish the inner and outer surfaces of the lens (I use Mer).

Re-assemble the lens, heat the two halves in the oven again until the adhesive softens, assemble the unit together, allow to cool, then re-attach the metal clips, buls, etc. And hey presto, your headlights will look like new again!!

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.

Im trying to clean the inside of the lens on the driver side headlight of dodge intrepid year 2000. i want to take apart the housing and dont know how.


There is no taking the lense apart. It is a sealed unit. If the lense needs cleaning on the inside it is because the headlamp assembly has been damaged and needs to be replaced. If it just has the bad yellowing on the outside, most auto parts stores have headlamp cleaning kits available.
AutoZone lists your headlamp assemblies at $299.99

dttech_11.jpg It might be a good idea to check with a salvage yard first. You may find a good used one for less than half the price.

Can I or how do I take apart and clean the inside of the headlight lens of my 1999 A4 Audi. They have a fog on them that makes the lights dimmer


Unfortunetly you cant get into the lens to clean it from the inside. The "fog" up that you have is moisture that gets inside. Usually you will have to replace the headlight itself. If thats the case, you can get them used or from a salvage yard if you dont want to spend dealer price.

How to remove the lens cover (headlights) in order to clean them


Those assemblies are not meant to come apart. You can purchase a head light resurfacing kit at Auto Zone or any other Auto parts stop. It takes a little time but it works well.

How can I replace or clean my headlight globe of a 1998 Galant


Headlight globe, meaning the inside of the headlight? If thats what you mean, only way to do it, is to take the lens off, and in order to do that, you need to take out the headlight, take off the rubber backings and take out the light bulbs. Then preheat your oven to 210 degrees, stick your light in there for 10 minutes, and pry apart the lens, since the glue will melt. Dont forget to undo the clips that also hold the lens to the housing. After you pry off the lens, clean or whatever you need to do. Then reseat the lens and hook the clips, then back in the oven it goes for 10 mins. Then hold pressure on the lens untill glue hardens.

Hope that helps.

They will not have or sell replacement globes, it will come with the whole headlight.
