It is very easy to get the headlight covers off. There are four screws on each headlight; you're going to need a socket set to get them off. Two are immediately visible on the top; for the other two you have to look straight down the back side of the headlight housing. Once you take those four screws out and disconnect the wiring for the lights, you can pull the headlight free. To get the covers off, take a flathead screwdriver and GENTLY pry up the tabs surrounding the entire front of the headlight. There is also a single tab down in the crevace in between the low beam light and the turn signal.
Once you have the covers off, you can try to polish them or you can snap new ones on.
