Old and foggy headlights.
One headlight cover is yellow and foggy. The other is foggy. (Foggy meaning the plastic is no longer perfectly clear and is clear but smudgy.)
What are my options to fix it? Worst and costly is pulling and replacing both units.
I was told that, the polishing kits to fix this really do not work.
When they first did this kind of design with headlights, they put a special coating on the plastic to keep bug guts off. But it degraded. So when you use a treatment on the plastic, it does not last. Also, micro fractures in the plastic are a problem.
So, this design, a big case with all the headlights in it, is no longer used on cars (you may notice) because, it is inherently flawed.
I am hoping, that at least someone out there, sells a new clear plastic part and, I can just swap that out but keep the perfectly fine headlights inside it. Hopefully saving a few hundred dollars.
