Hi all, how easy is it to remove the glass on the headlights for cleaning as they are looking very cloudy?

Welcome to NPOC,

It is normally the outside the gets cloudy
You can get Headlight Restoration Kits to make them clear again.

Depending on the conditon of them,sometimes you can wet sand them with 2000 grade,then buff them back up,it often works or you can get headlight restore kits instead off the shelve.Whatever you do mask around the lights to protect the bodywork while sanding on so on.

They are not designed to be taken apart, they are sealed units, if you are determined and really think they are dirty from the inside, then I think you are going to have to heat them and have a careful think how you are going to seal them again.
If as we all believe the fogginess in on the outside, more dense at the top of the headlight then you are going to need a restorer or replacement

also got another question, is there a fuse for the central locking, as i had a solenoid replaced in one of the doors because it was making a grrrrrrrr noise overtime i locked it and then about two weeks later the noise came back again and now is doing it on the back door as well.

The noise on the door central locking motors will be due to water ingress.Sometimes the doors can self lock themselves after opening them.
