One of the lenses on my stock H-5 headlights is a little cloudy. I am planning a rather long, extended nightime drive and am considering upgrading my bulbs to 55/100 watt configuration and would like to start with clear lenses. Is there a way to clean the inside of the headlamps - short of replacing the assembly. Also, what experience with these higher wattage bulbs have you had? Should I be aware of heat problems? My local shop recommended 55/100 wattage rather than 80/100 due to heat and I would install 10 gauge wire with a separate relay.
