Default 98 Boxster headlight discoloration

Does anyone know how to seperate the lens from the body of the headlight assembly? My clear front left lens is not so clear anymore. It seems to have a yellowish discoloration like it got too hot. Any ideas??
Thanks
ML

I had that same problem when I first bought my 911, which has the same headlights as your 986. I was told that you really can't take that assembly apart as it will ruin it,so I found a set of them on ebay that looked like new. They fit like a glove and no problems since.

This is just my opinion, but I think what makes them crack and turn that ugly yellow color is when people tryusing those high intensity bulbs, which maybe burn hotter?

Good luck,
Kevin

You should check try Headlight Restoration Service ( www.hrslights.com ). I have used them on my 06 Cayenne, and my headlights look brand new. I hope this helps.
