I was wondering how I would go about getting the inside of my left and right headlights cleaned? There's like a thin layer of dirt/debris that's formed along the top half on the lens of each headlight. I was going to take apart the headlights but I was told not to do that cause water condensation would form inside the headlights. Feedback on this issue would be much appreciated.

Well i had dirt on my headlights and I used Blue Magic. ITs in a white bottle that you can get at any local autoparts store. Its good but you have to spend some time, about 15-20 minutes on each headlight to get them really clean. You can see results in the first buffing.

The 93-94 plastic headlamps are sealed, so the build-up should be on the outside. I had a similar problem on my car also, my lights were a bit cloudy and yellow. Try the blue magic plastic cleaner/scratch remover it works very good. It will take some time and a few applications but it works. Then follow that up with a good plastic polish, i used some eagle one plastc polish/protectant and my headlamps look clean and clear again. Good luck...:)

Never seen a 93-94 sentra with glass headlamps, only the 91-92. Your 93 must be one of a kind! Or maybe it's a 92 ?:)

ok, well then this confirms my theroy. way before i got this car. infact not even a year after it was built (march 93) this car was in a front end accident. the origional owner then sold the car to get a bigger one. the scond owner is who i got it from. it appears that when the car was repaired, an older front clip, we think we traced it down to a 92. was used. which is in fact illigeal to do, at least in Maine.

years later after they are all worn and fogged and yellow, i try to replace them and run into a big major headache. so my 93 has a 92 front clip. you guys just reassured that. question is, will plastic headlights fit in a 92?

Well since nissan wants $165 each for 93-94 headlamps and another $65 for the grill, it will be cheaper to go with the mexican headlamp upgrade. I think Greg V from Mossy Nissan sells the kit for about $350. Just something to consider, when you're ready to do the swap... :)
