hey has anyone ever removed their headlamp lens and cleaned/replaced it? if so how did you do it and what did you use considering you did seal everything back properly? and how do you keep it from turning that yellow tint?

thanks alot

this may seem funny. TOOTHPASTE with some kind of agent to make your teeth white. Works really good to get rid of that cloudy look. Just got a large soft bristle brush. Get it wet and put toothpaste on your lights. Scrub it until its almost dry and pasty. Then get the brush wet again and keep at it. Repeat until its no longer pastey. Rinse it off and your done.
