Can anyone tell me how to remove the headlight covers for a 1993 bmw 318is? I want to clean them off, because they're a bit cloudy, but I don't want to screw somethign up. Can anyone direct me to a guide, or give me some instructions?

NA or elsewhere in the world?

NA-specs aren't removeable.

theyre removable, just not meant to be

you have to put them in the oven and pry apart the glue... its not worth it

if you search headlight cleaning you may happen up a method that cleans them quite nicely too.

Hey, thought i would let you know to check out this stuff: Megiuars Plastic Cleaner and Polish. Its like $6 a bottle and works fantasically on the outside. I thought most of mine was on the inside and was suprised when i found it to be 80% was on the outside. they dont look as bad now, wish i had some pics for you to see.

If you are wondering where to get it i had to ask for it at O'reilly's they dont keep it on the shelf, so you MUST ask for it.

Later
