Hi there,

My EF headlights are cloudy/oxidised/yellowed

does anyone have any tips? Should I chuck something like http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_odkw=hid+kit+ef&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xhid+kit+ford+ef.TRS0&_nkw=hid+kit+ford+ef&_sacat=0 in it?

Does the toothpaste cleaning trick work?
My beams are so dull something has to be done, but I don't want to take out the bar.

Clean the headlights.

Fitting HID while the lenses are stuffed will be a waste of time.

Toothpaste does work but if they are real yellow use the above method first.

or you can purchase a redtoration kit like these

They may be that far gone that they may need to be replaced.
