    Some people use tooth paste and a tooth brush. Johnnie, if you click on "explore projects" then "clean" then type "headlights " in the search box and hit enter you will find several ways. I have chosen one for you, but there are more if this does not work for you.

    I did my daughters car. Used a White (not gel) toothpaste and a damp cloth. A dab of toothpaste on the cloth and rub in a circular motion a small area at a time. Keep the toothpaste moist. A separate wet cloth squeezing water as you rub. Wipe as you go along to see the progress. Once done put some paste wax over the lenses.

    Hi Johnnie, Don't go anywhere until you have cleaned them. I would say White Toothpaste, but you could try WD-40..............Best wishes.

    The surface is sun/ weather damaged. Go to a hardware store or auto parts store and get some 2000 grit wet or dry sandpaper. Sand the lens with a trickle of water until all the yellow faded portion is gone. Then use toothpaste to bring the lens to an almost clear state. Clean the lens with alcohol, and paint with a uv resistant clear coat, available at most parts stores, Home Depot, Lowes etc, for a permanent clear lens.
