aftermarket non OEM ford headlights are known to have condensation issues and you have to reseal them. Mine has OEM bulb as well comes with it

I use this stuff called flitz. Works wonders. You don't need a fancy drill attachment or anything like that, just elbow grease & follow the directions. It is a little pricey but you get your moneys worth, plus it's a metal polish (aluminum,chrome,stainless), restores & cleans fiberglass(some paint finishes too), & seals & protects all of the above. The only place I've ever found the stuff is in big rig shops. Like I said it is expensive but worth every penny. I have used it on headlights many times & it always cleared them right up. You may have to do it 2 or 3 times (with about a week or 2 between treatments) till the haze stays gone but it works better than anything else I tried. Plus an added bonus is it works on a lot of other stuff not just headlights.

Your best bet wit that would sand them wit 2000 grit paper then reclear them it will last a lot longer those polishes only last a few months where as the clear will last several years. I did this on the side at a body shop I worked at customers were a lot more satified wit the reclear
