The corner lights are held in place by a tab. If you look at the headlight from the rear, yout can see it. Pry the tab back with a screwdriver and push the light out. No need to remove the headlight.

As for cleaning the headlight, there are two things you can do:

1. West sand them with a metal polish, and follow up with sratch-x.

2. Use a convertable rear window plastic cleaner.
