Cloudy headlight

One headlight is perfectly clear but the other is cloudy. Does anyone have a fix for this?

One likely has already been changed. You can try to restore or buy another newer one. They all do it past a point if plastic ones.

I bought the car new and they are both the original headlights. I bought the Sylvania restoration kit. I’ll see how it does the job.

That would be pretty unusual. Maybe the plastic changed between the two, it has happened. They change the plastics used all the time.

I used to sell restore kits, I found most do not want to do the amount of work it takes to get the job right.

I myself sand the lights to then repaint them like the OEM ones commonly are and they look like new then but the paint flakes off after 2-3 years and you have to do it again.

Simply polish the plastic and the sun's UV kills the job pretty quick.
