      I just went through needing to cleanup my lenses as they looked like they were literally painted over with yellow paint. Up here in the north (Ohio) our winters get interesting with plenty of days of salt on the road which really speeds up the process of damaging these lenses.
      Anyways, 3M makes a white paste rubbing compound in a small pouch that runs around $4.00 that did the trick with a clean cloth. Most auto stores or hardware store will have this. I spent about 15 minutes per light. Applied a small amount and worked it in with a old rag. Before its starts to dry I began buffing it out with a clean cloth. Repeated 2 to 3 times each side and the lenses are like new. I did see a quick temporary fix is using WD-40 applied on each light which works for a good 24 hours if your just in need of that trip in the night and want some extra visibility.

      Brasso and a wet sponge with the green scotch Brite.

      1 Use about a quarter size amount of brasso 5 to 10 min a side.

      2 wipe off the headlights until clean repeat if necessary.

      3 apply another thin layer of brasso let dry to a haze, use a clean soft cloth and polish until clean. Repeat step 3 every other month or so depending on how much you drive it.

      recently replaced headlights , crystal clear as of sept. 2021, i'm thinking just turtle wax couple coats every four months shud be fine protection for road haze, occasional flying critter bomb, Tho I still stand by and endorse Repel mosquito repellant 40% deet, cheap and quick, couple squirts on rag, wipe over lens to remove critter stains and road haze for like new crystal clear finish
