I have to do this to mine as well. It sounds like such a pain to polish those. I found an awesome DIY on how to get them looking really clear with sanding and some special glass polishing powder. Might be worth looking into too.After 6 years of running lamin x on my fog lights I decided it was time to take them off.
I wet sanded my foglights while I was there. Not perfect but an improvement. I may go back and do it again to clean them up a bit more.
I also got some yellow bulbs off ebay so they still light up yellow.
Side by side comparison. Still not perfectly clear but a lot better than before.
I feel you. It was so much work for so little pay off lol.I had something similar happen to me with that same hose. The rubber elbow was resting on the side of the engine so it burned through the rubber and leaked. I tried replacing it in the service position but there was no way that was gonna happen so I did the same and pulled off the front end. So much work for such a little hose :facepalm: I didn't have the time to go out to the junkyard so I had to get a new one from the dealer and even with my discount it was still a pretty penny
