Headlamp plastic covers are cloudy...where can you buy replacements? The dealer wants $700 for replacement light units...all I need is the covers....

You can not buy just the covers. They come as complete assemblies as the dealer quoted you. What you can do is call around your area to find a shop that offer's headlamp restorations.

Basically they will sand all the degraded material off of the lenses, polish them, and then reseal them. I do them all the time with fantastic results.

I can give you some instruction on how to do this yourself if you are interested or you can check out my how to tip.

How do I remove the headlight cover to clean the inside part of the headlight cover. It appears to be fogging making the lights seem dim.

you are talking aftermarket headligth covers? , the head lite itself cant not be taken appart, your best bet is to drill a small hole in the lower part ofthe headlight so moisture can be release, this will help but in the long run you'll need to replace it

the lens covers are not serviceable that means the hadlamp assy. is one piece, very expensive too. my guess is they are cloudy, right, or broken, they can be cleaned, call your local dealer they can resurface them back to original fairly inexpencive.

How to replace the head lamp on a 1990 Saab 900?

STEP 1 The following steps were for a 99 95 but should apply to all cars with slight variations. Unlike with some other types of cars... the wiring to your burnt-out headlamp (not to the Head...light Assembly) is hidden. First, find the large dome-like black plastic cover on the back of the headlight assembly. Rotate it slightly to unlock, and it should fall away. STEP 2 Grasp the plastic connector that is now revealed, and wiggle it from side to side while pulling toward the rear of the car.
STEP 3 Depress the upper part of the metal restraining clip so that it can swing down and out of the way. STEP 4 Gently pull, or rotate and pull, the headlamp out of the headlight assembly. STEP 5 Being careful not to touch the glass on your new headlamp... (use a clean cloth)...grasp the lamp by the two metal tabs and gently insert it into the hole in the assembly. STEP 6 Replace the connector. STEP 7 Replace the black plastic cover, rotating slightly to lock. Check to make sure it is locked in place.

Can't locate the cooling fan sensor or relay.

the radiator fan relay is located behind and slightly lower than the r/f way to get to this is by removing right side of front fascia out enough to get behind it. this will give you acsess to the relay.i work at a jeep dealer and have done this many times.

Removal of headlight assembly

You cannot clean the insides. The are sealed if you attempt to remove them, which is a big job in itself, you run the risk of damaging the seal and allowing water and moisture to get inside which could lead to more problems. What I would recommend is to visit your local parts store, and pick up a bottle of Maguire's cleaner wax. Apply some of the wax directly on the headlamps and with a terry cloth or a microfiber cloth rub the wax in real good with a little bit of pressure. Allow the wax to cure and then polish it off with a dry part of the towel. Generally these headlamps oxidize and causes this foggy or cloudy appearance.

Cloudy lens

all you need to do is go to a pro auto paint store and pick up some "rubbing compound" it's like a wax. You "waxon"  - "waxoff" with a circular motion. It will remove the oxidation off of your plastic light cover. No need to remove.

Dull, cloudy headlight cover

Wet sand the light cover with 2000 grit sand paper.Use a hi speed buffer with an aggressive rubbing compound at around 2000 rpm. It'll make you light covers as clear as they were new. It may take doing this a couple of times depending on how cloudy your light covers are.
