    Lightbulb Frosty Headlamp fix?

    I have a 9-5 2003 with frosty headlights. I have tried one of the polishing kits withe little results.

    Is there another year 9-5 headlight that will fit right in that has a glass lens?

    Thanks

    Kym

    All the headlights for 2002-2005 are plastic. I think the <=2001 had glass headlights but they won't fit your 2003.

    Which polishing kit did you use? The 3M kit gives good results: http://saabworld.net/f243/headlight-restoration-2038/

    I have used the 3M kit on mine and it works well, just make sure to take your time and really complete each step fully. Also take out the headlights when you do it to avoid scuffing the paint as the drill bit sanding pad is hard to get into the corners of the headlights near the body work without scuffing anything else.
