Need Advice After Headlight Fogged Up

Hey everyone.

I hope I've posted this in the correct forum section. If not, please forgive me. I couldn't find the troubleshooting/problems section.

Anyways, I own a 2000 Ford Mustang, of which the headlight (driver side) has gotten foggy. It's certainly not as transparent as the passenger side light. At first I wasn't sure why one was foggy and the other wasn't, but then I took a closer look at the foggy light and noticed a small crack on the outside casing. I believe this crack has allowed moisture to enter the light. I've heard of people restoring their headlights with special DIY kits, but I've decided to take the route of simply replacing the light with an aftermarket light from an online store. I found two sites that I particularly liked, but I'm unsure of whether or not they are legitimate businesses. Furthermore, I don't want to fall prey to a scam. Has anyone purchased from either of these sites and can verify that they are a legitimate business? Thanks in advance.

Great upgrade is the darker looking lights the '02-'04 have stock.

Re: Need Advice After Headlight Fogged Up

I personally haven't bought thru either of those places nor have I heard of them...but that doesn't mean they aren't decent sites.

Our site sponsors do offer OEM replacement headlights as well. If you wanted to get a different look you could get the 01-04 smoked headlights with the amber corners. They are a great upgrade from the clear chrome lights that came on the 99-00's.

Some mustang salvage yards might have used headlights from wrecked stangs for a decent price to. May want to look into that if you want to spend less. Just make sure they aren't damaged or cracked.
