    clear??? I am assuming you mean clean if so buy some plast-X made by Maguires (wow i cant spell) anyhow that stuff cleans all of the gunk, and any yellowing you might have right up... It is a polish and takes some elbow grease unless you have a power ball then i just let my drill do the work..

    I believe you have to cut the headlights open on the 07-10 trucks to get to the reflectors

    Not to thread hijack, but how do you clear up the capsules? Do you have to take them apart?

    I had a 2008 Toyota Tacoma and did the Black headlight mod , which is taking the headlights apart and sanding the chrome and painting it black , turned out great. But what I'm trying to get to is on the Tacoma you had to pre -heat your kitchen oven and cut it off and lay the headlights in on a cookie sheet for about 7 minutes and that softens the factory glue to pull them apart. After you got through with what you wanted to do , you pre-heat cut off and set them back in for 5 minutes and re-stick them together and clamp them for a few minutes. You can find this entire write up on the tacoma world website.Good Luck!!

    Here's another link to GM trucks for the same thing. I've skimmed the articles and it sounds like it's somewhat involved...Good luck!

    that works for the 03-07 trucks, for the 07+ trucks you'll need to cut the headlights with a dremel or something similar.
