The plastic headlight cover has turned opaque and has reduced the output of the headlights by approximately 50%. due to the reduction of headlight output I have stopped driving the car at night due the low output. I have tried to use auto cleansers but the have not been effective..I think the headlight plastic lenses should be replaced.
