    Default Headlight lens cover 92 Ford Taurus

    The headlight lens cover on my 92 Taurus is slightly cloudy.
    What is the best way to polish the outside.
    Also how would I remove it so I can do the inside?

    A mild abrasive. Toothpaste is often recommended.

    The outside is probably frosted from collision with road grit. The
    inside shouldn't have been exposed to this.

    I'm trying to think what the 92 has, I think that had the big square
    headlamps with a plastic shield over the glass, right?

    You are correct, large rectangle with plastic shield

    Try regular auto polish - like the Dupont polish. That usually works
    great!

    My second car is a '92 Taurus wagon. When I inherited it the headlights were
    about 1/4 full of water. I removed the lamp assemblies from the back and
    stuffed an air hose in there and waved it around for the better part of an hour.
    I eventually got all the water out. No apparent damage. No more water in there
    either.... It took it 14 years to fill up 1/4 of the way so it may take a while
    to have more leak in.

    YMMV.
