Isn't it (supposedly) a sealed unit? Confused

Why do u want to remove the lens?
if they r yellow there are products out there that will clean them up.
i used 5 minute optimal polish. got it from NAPA for $10.00 worked great.
if u r interested search JU forums there is a before/after post, with part #.

This is not a sealed unit. It's a lens/housing with a replaceable bulb.The lens has moisture inside. So I need to either replace it or try to clean the inside and seal the front edges. I just don't know how to remove it. Possibly a very long star screwdriver which I can't find. 96 grand cheerokee ltd.

I drilled a hole in my headlights to let the water out.. As long as I dont turn on the lights while there is water in there I am fine..

Well, A year later and I still haven't got my answer.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE HEADLAMP LENS.

I now want to replace them with some nice glass ones like they have in Europe. They are supposed to fit perfect. Beter light without retrofitting fro a HID system.

Thanks, ANYBODY!!!

The lense itself is not removable, like posted earlier. Here's the info for removing the whole housing.
