Replacing cloudy headlights?

Postby Mal » Sun Sep 16, 2018 3:13 pm

Hi, my wife's 07 CJ Lancer (bought new) headlights has become cloudy. I want to replace the part, not interested in restoring/polishing the 11 year old plastic.

Do I need to buy the whole headlight assembly or is the lens replaceable? A part number would be appreciated, thanks.

You can get non-genuine standard headlamp assemblies on EBay for around $115 each..don't know what the quality is like though

$115 is a good price
Have a hunt thru Gumtree and the wreckers I have come across some under $100 in my travels

What do you mean by cloudy? As in hazy like below?

If so, just get a toothbrush and toothpaste and slowly brush all around the hazy areas in a circular motion and simply wash away when done.

Surprisingly works well with toothpaste and will come out like new! You can also use a compound and a buffing machine for best results. Another option is a headlight repair kit which can be bought from most auto stores such as SCA https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/rai ... 30154.html

No need to buy new headlights. Save your $$$
