Buy new headlights at either Autozone or Solo.   They are called Faros here.  Lights gradually weaken over time so they should be replaced now and then even when they are still working.  They don't cost much in any case.

A simple and inexpensive way to clean the headlight lenses is with plain white toothpaste.  I bought a tube along with a battery operated electric toothbrush at a dollar store and used it to clean the lenses on a 93 Dakota, that had never been cleaned.  Did a pretty decent job and when you finish polishing just wash off the lenses with a garden hose.

The lens cleaning kits are available at Autozone. They are expensive. Might try the toothpaste first or a paste made from baking soda as in this video.

The headlight lens cleaning kit I bought in Tucson was $25 USD, just to give an idea on USA price.
Don’t know what the import markup is to buy a kit here at AutoZone.

I used auto polishing compound and a polishing wheel for a drill. Took a while but works great.

The white polish and some estopa from the Sherwin Williams store is what I have used. Takes about 5 minutes every 3 years if they are not fogged on the inside..

I have arthritis in my fingers, so hoping to find a place that does it.
