Default Replace Headligh Lens

I have a 2006 Monte with foggy headlight lens. I tried various restore kits. Better, but not best. Does any one have a procedure for replacing them? They don't appear to be that expense. So rather than wasting time on restoring, I would like to replace.
Thanks all,
rcgray48 (Bob)

Just gotta buy a whole new assembly and swap it out. eBay has plenty for a decent price, it's a better route than trying to bake and pry apart just the lens and reattach a new lens.

Pop hood, pull the white tab, unscrew the one screw (I think on the 06/07 they have a screw instead of just 2 white tabs), disconnect bulbs, pull straight out.

When you see what your lights look like through new, clear lenses, you will instantly realize you don't need better bulbs.

Sounds like a plan! I should be getting the new headlight assembly in a few days. It will be great to finally see at night again! I live in an area where they're very liberal with the salt. So when you add layer of salt on a foggy night. FORGET IT! I really apprecate all the help!

I like GE Nighthawk bulbs, but I would only replace if they blow. Remember to wear gloves and not touch your bulbs with bare hands when you replace.
