    After totaling my Escalade, I'm the proud new owner of a 2007 4Runner Sport.

    In any case, I'm looking to replace a front headlight cover (as one looks brand new and the other one looks much older). What is the most economical way to go about this? Do I order one myself? If so, any recommendations as to where are much appreciated.

    Well the headlights are one solid piece. I mean I guess you could go through the trouble of taking out the entire headlight (the bad one) baking it in the oven long enough to soften the glue then get a brand new new headlight and do the same thing then take that "cover" as you put it onto the original headlight and hope that it seals correctly.


    OR

    You can buy new ones and I'd do them in pairs and replace them both. Which I think is what happened with the one you say looks band new. So you could just replace just one.

    OR

    You can try to have the hazy one restored. But that depends on how deep the oxidation has gone. I've tried restoring mine (in the past-same year as yours) with Deep Woods Off mosquito spray- I know it sounds crazy but it works, albeit temporarily.
