Replacing headlight lens on Allegro

Decided that the hazy lens covers weren't what i was looking for after "restoring" them, better but not clear enough for the new HID bulbs. Looking at the headlight assembly tonight it appears I have to take the plastic trim to get to the lens. Sure don't want to break it, any tips on how to remove it easily so I don't have to buy a new one of them?

Thanks so much.

Carol

Like these?



Maybe this video on how they are attached to an F150 will help:

Plastic lenses on newer headlight assemblies are usually bonded permanently to the assembly and are not replaceable. If you can't get them clear enough with restoration, you may have to replace the entire assembly.

That being said, I restored the headlight lenses of the Allegro Bay motorhome and the Saturn Vue toad we used to have with a 3M Headlight Restoration Kit. The lenses came out almost as clear as when they were new.

Thank you! I have ordered new "complete" headlights and the video was very informative and I have enlisted my neighbor who has replaced the headlight on his 97 ford to help with this procedure. Can't wait to have clear headlamps on the coach! Will also take advantage of have the plastic frame off and get that painted and shiny also! Will use some of the Fusion for plastic spray paint.

I use tooth past with grit in it! Works great to clear up yellow lens!

My husband and our neighbor who had changed the headlamps on his F250 got the job done today. While they had it apart I took the opportunity to put some truck bedliner spray paint on the plastic rims. This is what they look like now!
