if youre referring to that yellowy coloured stain. its on the outside. all plastic lenses get it.

some cutting compound will sort it out.

Autosol is also very good for it, it just takes some elbow grease.

or you could buy some of that meguiars plastic polish and go at it with an electric mop. only takes 2 minutes and they look good as new ^^

There is a way of splitting them apart to clean the inside too. This is the guide here. (Found in useful links)

i did the oven trick on my civic lights to seperate them to paint the insides met' grey.

just be careful not to cook to melting point.

I wet n' dry my lights. When sanding them the water was a yellowy colour and i kept sanding till it went white. Used some rubbing compund, then T-Cut and then polish = good as new :)
