    Are the lenses replaceable or do I need to get a whole new headlight assembly? The lenses are getting the aged fog on them and getting hard to use them at night...

    You will have to replace the full headlamp assembly. You can get aftermarket ones. Or even sets as the one will be much clearer than the old one.

    Already tried that. Also tried the bug spray route. They are just too clouded. It actually looks like the clouding is happening on the inside of the lens. Thats why I was just wondering if the lenses could be replaced. Hate to spend more $$$ on this

    Been checking Amazon. Found some similarly priced. Thanks for the pic though.

    I saw where you said tried to polish. Have you tried WD40?

    yep. Didn't do much. Gonna just replace them. Found a YT video on exactly how to do it. Doesn't seem too hard. My truck is a bit more beat up then that one they use but shouldnt be a problem. Just need to make sure I buy the right assemblies...lol

    A1 you posted. Had replacement assemblies for a 97 accord, (affordable too) I actually was skeptical but kids car had to have them. Easy install better than Ken and damn sure better than the custom ones a kid out in it in the 90’s
