Default Fog on the inside of headlights

So I've searched throughout the web on this subject and the real question I have, and can't find an answer for is...

Is it fixable? Or am I better off buying new headlights? And if so, where can I find them at a reasonable price?

Did you ever open them up and reseal them? Did the previous owner?

Either way, you can live with it or you can carefully open them, clean them up, and reseal them with new sealant. Taking care that there's no moisture.

Yeah it might have been opened up before.

You could use the headlight lens cleansing kits they sell at a lot of stores. I tried it and it cleared mine up.

Okay yeah I'll try that, the previous owner must have opened it up then, cause I haven't! Thanks you guys! I'd rather do that then drop 325 or more on new stock lights! Haha

Bake them again, clean them out, and use liquid nails for a water tight seal!! Done and they will look great!!


Liquid Nails $4.95

Awesome! If I'm doing that I might as well take out the amber in the headlights, I've always liked that. Go for that JDM look. : ) I'll probably leave the turn signal ambers though. Unless their amber bulbs? I can't tell if the turn signal lights are actually that color or if its just the amber reflector. Hmm

To achieve that "JDM" look, it would be best to just leave the amber reflectors. Dat how we roll in JDM YO. The turn signal bulbs are most likely clear bulbs and if you do remove the amber pieces, ensure you do replace bulbs to amber. Mad tyte "JDM" now yo!

I did both headlights today and everything turned out awesome! I only bought a headlight restoration kit and some sealant. All under 20 bucks.. Looking good as new! Thanks guys, I love this forum! : D JDM FTW! : P haha

Ps. The headlight restoration kit was cheap... Hope it stays clear for a while!

I hope it lasts for a while as well. My experience with those kits is you start to have haze and cloudiness within the week of doing it!!
