I know this seems to be a problem with some Escalade headlights, the tops of the lights are starting to fade, and get a white look to them. Have any of you ever experienced this? If so, what can I do about it besides buy new ones. Thanks.

you can get the meguiars plastic polish. or wet sand them with 1500 grit aluminuized paper then polish them with a white stone and a polishing wheel. you can get those items cheap @ HOME DEPOT in the tool coral.

As said a plastic polish will help for exterior, but many of the headlight assy's are dull on the inside of the lens. :(

There is this product called Novus. It really works wonders. There is a couple step process. Parts one and two. based off of how bad they are I would still start out with number two first to see what kind of results you get..

Well visit your local autozone ALUMINUMIZED paper is less abrasive so it wont leave marks in the plastic but it will cut the haze. a WHITE stone is a polishing compound used for a fine cut. im sure you can guess what the wheel is for.

There are several kits available to polish and renew the look of your headlamps.
I have seen a few of those. I wondered about this type of thing when everyone went to the plastic lamp assemblies years ago.
Guess I know my answer.

Look for something like this:
