Headlight cover cleaning


Recommended Posts

Anyone know how to clean up the headlight lens covers? Mine have turned slightly foggy. Toothpaste doesn’t work and I am unsure about using commercial brands.

 Thanks

Some moisture on the inside as well. Only solution is replace entire light assembly-very costly.

If the seals between the lenses and the headlight housings are broken and causing leaking, the lenses can often be removed by heating the headlight units in an oven - lots of YouTube videos on that.  Then reattach the lenses with an appropriate adhesive.

Moisture in headlights can also be caused by their vents getting clogged up - even spiders can do that.  Verify that the vents on the headlight units are clear.

My favorite headlight lens restoration kit is one from Sylvania - about $20 at stores and online.  I've made some really awful looking headlight lenses look like new with these kits.
