Yeah, mine are too. Haven't looked to see what it takes to get them off though. If I do before someone posts, I'll reply.

Mine were doing the same thing so I treated them to some Nite Shades. I don't think you will be able to clean the yellow oxidation off of them. Check my Nite Shades thread in the Exterior mods forum.

As for getting them out, I don't know that the lens actually comes out of the plastic housing. I tried to pry them out and to push them out from the back but they weren't budging and one even looked like it might start cracking. I removed the entire little housing from the bumper and taped off the lens to apply the Nite Shades and clear. The housing is very easy to remove. There is a metal clip on the back side of the bumper. You can feel it without getting under there but you might want to lay eyes on it to see exactly how it comes off. It pretty much just slides out, then twist and remove the light and socket, and the housing and lens comes free. It will be very obvious when you look at it. Hope this helps.

To actually clean the oxidation, you have to sand down to new plastic. But, if there's no way to get the actual lens out of the housing, that might make that hard...

Yep, that is the problem. It may very well come out but when I started to pry on mine it started to come apart. It was almost like the lens was dry rotted and softened. You know how some plastic takes on a crumbly, powdery quality after it's been in the sun too long? I looked the part up once and it came as a whole....the lens and the plastic housing/trim around it. Seems like they were about $30-40 each.

Any idea what these part #'s are? I'm putting led's in mine and for whatever reason I got clumsy and the bulbs popped out on both while installing...and are now trapped int he housing. I think I know how to remove the housing but if mine are bad I may get 2 new ones.

It appears the left lamp is Mopar # 55077291AF.
