Exclamation Foggy headlights!

Hey all! My headlights are foggy on the outside, and i got this cleaner that is supposed to fix it, but its not working, if you look at my picture you can kind of seem them (if you need a visual). I have tried to take that nasty off a few times with that stuff and nothing is happening. Anyone have any suggestions or anything?! Any ideas would help! i would just like to clean em for now and ill get new lights later, just trying to save up money for other stuff right now.

Re: Foggy headlights!

its an issue with mustangs i think. same thing happened to my 99. i bought cleaner for it, scrubbed the hell out of it, but it wasnt until i took some fine sandpaper to it that it got better. and even then, it was only good for a little while before they got cloudy again.

Re: Foggy headlights!

your headlights may have a clear coat on them but you can sand them and bring them back to a clear state (usually).

I personally would just buy some (ebay has em) for about 100-140 for a set. (upgrade to 01+ style!!!!)

Keep them waxed just like you wax the car to prevent this from happening again.

Re: Foggy headlights!

Yah sanding them is about the only way to get that film off the outside. If you get condensation on the inside of the housing, American Muscle has a good writeup on clearing it out and re-sealing the headlights properly again.

How To Fix Your Mustang Headlights If They Are Condensating - Installation Instructions at AmericanMuscle.com

Since you have an 02, you should already have the 01+ darker (factory smoked) headlights. If you want to get OEM's, make sure to get those again. (Unless you want the clear/chrome 99-00 ones)

Re: Foggy headlights!

3M makes a product called headlight retore kit, you can get it from Autozone for 22$ , it has 3 different grit of sandpaper and polish, it works real good, just use some blue masking tape around the edges
