Headlights

I have a 2006 Intrigue 530 with fogged headlights on the inside. Is there a procedure to clean and polish the inside or should I replace both buckets and lens? If replacement is required, where are they available?

On my rig one of the lights didn't look good. The light was a one piece assembly that was set in polyurethane. I got the number off the front of the light and bought another off the internet. I then cut the old one out a set the new one. You can check to see if yours is set the same way. Not a hard job to do and cost less then $200.00.

I just bought an 04 Allure 40' and the headlights were quite fogged up. I run a few automobile dealership service departments so one of my detailers took about 30 minutes and took a compound to the both headlights and they cleaned up to almost like new. I just really don't like the look of them now or fogged up and found a few more modern looking options online. After poking my head inside I honestly have no idea how I would even begin to remove and replace the old ones. Anyone have any ideas or should I leave it to the proffesionals at my local RV shop?

Thanks....took some time to really review the lens and decided to try buffing with 3m lens polish. Results were great. Saved the time to replace and cost.
Need to study these issues before jumping into projects in the future.

Thanks again

Welcome to iRV2.
The guys at the RV shop might not have any better idea than you have.
Unless they happen to have done one before.
You may have to start you own new post with your question about replacement. More people would see it, others may read, nelsokelso's question , and not read all the posts and miss your question.

In looking at online pictures of a 2006 Intrigue 530 online, those are Ford Explorer or F-150 fixtures, similar to my '04 Inspire. I think CC has long used Ford head and taillights. Most all RV mfgs. utilize what is already out there and available.

If they are indeed hazed on the inside, then you're probably better off just replacing them. The entire assembly should be easy to source and replace especially since it looks like your whole lower front valance comes out with the generator which is typical.

If it's water, take the bulb out of the back and use a hair dryer to dry out the inside. Just a thought.

I used one of the headlight buffing products and the results were pretty good. The bad news is they looked just as bad just a few months later. I am now, literally today, installing new headlight housings. Mine are from 89 +/- Ford Bronco and F series. These were less than $100 each. They look awesome. While doing this I'm installing HID replacement bulbs. I should have done this from the beginning.

Issue resolved for now....polishing with compound and wheel made a terrific difference...then a plastic wax to prevent any further deterioration.

Does anyone know what year and model vehicle the 98 Intrigues have. I thought it was a Ford Bronco but not sure what year.

Those are late 1980's Ford F series including Bronco assemblies. Just Google 1989 Ford F150 and you will see plenty of pics.

If they are late 80s F series and Bronco search TYC 20-1570 and 1571. I just bought a set off Amazon and they are great. I installed HID bulbs and the light output is awesome.
