    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!!

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