Which is it, battery acid or brake fluid? Did you think they are the same thing, lol?

Either one can etch plastic. It's not the remaining fluid that's the issue -- the plastic has been etched.

You need to polish the plastic back to a shine -- but it will probably never look quite right -- could be it could. I can't see the damage so I don't know.

wet sand it with 2k grit sand paper, and use a rubbing compound on it and buff it out.. that will clear up the whole headlight also
