    I think on the 98 and 99 Tacomas have the exact same headlights.

    On my 98 you could not separate the lens from the buckets. Furthermore Toyota decided to go keep and put plastic lens on them. My understanding is you can buy new headlights with glass lens that will last much longer.

    More than the wife knows!
    to remove the lenses you could remove the clips and bake them in the oven as in doing the BHLM, but i would just get new assy. I have not found anyplace that just sells the lenses. I had that problem when i had my 98
