I love hearing such awesome feedback about a Ford dealership! Let me know how the rest of the repair goes.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

2008 Ford Focus That is good news Dave. It is very unusual to have this issue with our vintage Focus. I am glad it will all work out.

PSUrivie You can sand it off, buff the lenses and then apply a film such as LaminX.

Minchkin Mine do it too. I say, no big deal. Just use some lens resto on it and all should be well. I know that this is an issue on the Halo Projectors and has been solved in the same way though.

I don't need my headlamps turning cloudy and yellow on me when the car is still like new. Got it in june of 2011 was a left over and only had 100 miles in it. Has anyone else had a problem with headlamps
Hi Dave02895,

Taking your Focus in to the dealership is a great first step. Let me know what the outcome is; I'm happy to step in if you need me.
