Headlight haze on the INSIDE. Fix?

Can you open up the lights and clean the clear lenses from the inside? Or is it screwed? It's getting foggy/hazy but it's on the inside.

Hit up G35lin. He's done it before. I couldnt find his post or I would have linked it up for you.

Good luck

Just bake them and open them up and clean it that way.

Great. So the cloudiness you experienced on the inside just came off with the cleaning?

If its hazy on the inside, you cant really clean it... if you start scrubbing it with ANYTHING, it'll scratch up the inside of the lens. They coat the inside of the lens with clearcoat... no clue why, so that haziness is probably your clearcoat burning off. It's a VERY VERY thin coat, ones it goes.. you might aswell look for new headlight. Whenever I take customers headlights apart, I never touch the inside, unless theres water stains from condensation. If its dust, or something that comes off then you can try taking a brand new piece of microfiber cloth and gently wiping the inside of the lens down, do not use bounty... it'll scratch the lens... learned from past experience.

If it is hazy, it is not from the inside

It is oxidation on the outside, and you to use 2000 Grit sandpaper, wet sand it down, then use a polishing compound, then use Meguires PlastX

Back to new in an hour or so

I did, when I blacked out my bezels. Bought some ebay aftermarket ones and used the lense and bezels.

Jeff, as I mentioned before. G35lin cleaned out the inside of his lenses before. If memory serves me right, he used alcohol to remove the film/clear coat X-Vert mentioned. I wish I could find his thread.
