I have a 99--540 and recently I cleaned the outside of the head lights....however they still seem not clear in looking at certain angles in day light I get the feeling that they are dirty from the inside of the lens sort of almost smoky....anyone have this as a problem???

Are these a PITA to remove and clean?

For all intents and purposes, the headlights are a sealed unit. Perhaps the smokiness you saw is condensation? Maybe it'll dry up in a day or two...it is pretty hot 'n dry in Sonoma County now! :)

Scratch your fingernail across the glass...make sure the "smokiness" is not something on the outside.

You have any pics?

I just finished wet sanding and polishing these out because there where some small pits and they looked dull....I detail cars as a part itme biz so I have this process down.....now it really dosen't look like condensation on the inside its more of a smokey look and at certain angles you can see that it seems to be on the inside....These are sealed? that sucks
