i helped one of my friends fix his headlights on his mustang. his were all cloudy. what we did was wet sand the outside and then polished it with my buffer and polishing compound. it made a huge difference. cleared them up nicely. i would recomend trying that before taking the headlights apart.

cloudy like fogy/moisture? if so, my friend had that with his tails on his rx8. drilled a few holes that werent noticeable and never had a problem again.
if not that, its outside so wetsanding them would make them look new again.

The cloudy haze isnt on the inside of the lens-its actually on the outside. I thought the haze was inside as well when I first looked at mine. Best way to make them look new again is wet sanding, 1500 then 2000 grit. Then polish them with aluminum wheel polish. They make a product to seal the plastic when you are done so they stay looking new-without that sealer they will haze again in a few months.

I have read several times if you want to take yor headlights apart you need to bake them in a ovem for 20 minutes-not sure on the temperature- look for the "whistler mod" and it will tell you the proper temperature.
