Yellowed?

If that's the case have you tried a product like Maguiars PlastX or in more extreme cases, Wet 'n' Dry sandpaper as outlined here:

Both are likely to be cheaper than a brand new set of lights, from Ford or anyone else.

Ozeparts have GLi/Futura ones from as low as $95 a side. Fairmont/Fairlane ones are just under double that at $180 a side though that's probably because the ones listed for Fairmonts are genuine and not aftermarket copies.

Ugly Igely did an excellent doco on removing yellowed headlights and fixing them. I suggest you find a post by him, as his link is in his signature.
