Depo headlights dull?

I noticed recently that my Depo AE headlights are getting dull but from inside
Is it possible to take plastic front off and clean it?

Yes,
Open hood
Pop out corner light
Remove lower head light trim ( last clip underneath corner light needs a flat head to pop it out)
Undo black headlight bezel
Take of other black trim thing
Lens will pop out of retainer clips
You may have to give it a good tug to break the seal with the gasket

Literally did this the other day to replace my cracked lenses, any questions just ask. And don't touch the bulbs/xenon bowl.

Good luck!
