    Is it possible to replace the lens cover on the facelift headlights as bought some cheap second hand headlights from ebay and they were scratched I've read the thread on removing the lens but just wondered instead of trying to polish the scratches out just buy new lens
    Any help would be great

    Thanks in advance gary

    You can polish the lens without any problem. :)

    Just flat it back with fine wet and dry and then go to town with some polish. There's various guides out there on the internet so a google search should come up trumps.

    What Tom said... as far as I know, the lenses aren't available separately...

    Sorry mucker, the lens is not available seperately.

    But as the others have said, it really is a piece of p*ss to polish up.
