Headlamp Lens Cleaning and Polishing

Is there a thread on this anywhere? I did a search, no luck. Want to remove, clean, and polish the lenses.

Or...,
Try Novus 1, 2 and 3 Plastic Polish
3 is a heavy scratch remover
2 is a medium - fine scratch remover to include yellowing
1 is a nice light polish (no abrasives), gives the final polishing a new look.
Very very easy to use.
We stock it is different sizes and in kits, but is not yet on the web site.

Any questions or concerns, please let me know (I also use it on the shower doors, gauge panels, anything plastic

Received the Novus kit (and bonus goodie). Did 3 passes with the 2 and 3, then a finish with the 1. Much better, but it appears that there is a slight haze on the inside of the lens and if I get that addressed, I think it will make for an even better result. Have to do a search to figure out how to pull the lens...

Once the lens is pulled, you can polish both sides.
(don't ask, LOL!!, I have no idea how to pull it, all cars are different and I don't have that info for every car, sorry)

However, your mechanic or local dealer should be able to help you with that

In order to remove the lenses, I think you may need to bake them like many X5Worldvmembers did to install their Angel Eye lights.

Before you pull the lense, make sure the haze is really on the inside. I had noticed the same problem on my driver's side lense and the problem was actually on the outside, but for some reasons (weird reflections) made it appeared as if it was hazy on the inside of the lense!
