Simple, Replace them with new original units!
Dont go s/h or reconditioned.
Worth the moneys and you wont look back after replacement!

Reconditioned is good or even better than original from what I've seen! It just depends where you get them from.. Alterntatively chris you can get some wet/dry grit paper and attack the yellow stuff until you get to the finest grit paper. After that polish them with wax.

Only reasoon i say dont go reconditioned units is ive heard stories of them having cracked lenses which dont leak initially but later become a pain..
Im sure you can get good reconditioned ones out there, but you can get new ones cheapish, just ask around.

Ive also seen condonditioned ones that look just as bad as ones people trade in!

Choice is upto him, but if its on the inside there is no option of cleaning them. :roll:

Fordmods shop used to sell aftermarket jobs - and no, im not talking about some ricey looking things, lol. "Non-genuine" prolly a better term for it. Just brand spanking new headlights without having to pay ford prices.

Ordered one for my EF 12 months ago, was a smidgen over $110 i think. Maybe brad can still get hold of em....
