Cloudy headlamp lens ...

and how to rectify.  Ive heard of the toothpaste route but it didnt seem to work on my previous car.  Im also aware of expensive claims from Halfords, one option of which has been tried and didnt work either.  Id really like to hear from someone who has been successful in achieving clarity – literally!  My son uses a professional detailer for his car and so he might have an answer to the problem, unless someone out there can suggest a solution that has been tried and actually works!?

Cheers in advance, Rowley

I have also used the meguires kit on a previous car and it worked perfect, bringing my cloudy lenses up like new. Its available in halyards for £20.

I will be buying the kit this weekend to tackle the x-type

I had mine done a few months ago from a fella advertising on facebook . He charged £25 and came to my house to do them . Unfortunately when i went to upgrade my headlight bulbs i noticed the reflectors were loose on both units . To cut a long story short i now have one headlight that looks brand new and the replacement i bought needs doing now. Well worth getting someone to do them for that price.

Hi Andrew

your old headlight with the loose reflector, all thats up with it, is broken adjusters

there available on eBay, in a better resin that will last and won't break again, there quite easy to replace and don't take that long

your headlights will eventually go loose and these adjuster will break because they go so brittle and break

I did mine and it's something I can forget about now, have a look on youtube, there's video's on how to do

cheers

Hi Hedgy

They look good NOW. Sadly though using t-cut will scratch the lens' and they won't stay clear for very long. Ideal for selling cars but not for keepers. Hope I haven't put the dampners on a job well done lol

Hello Rowley,

I had mine done by a guy also on Facebook, called Heavenly Headlights. I was a bit sceptical as I had already tried the Turtle Wax headlight restorer kit. But for £25 I thought why not.

He booked me in for a 1 hour window. He sanded the lights down using 3 grades of sandpaper. Buffed them, then applied a clear protective coat over the top. 5 months on still look great. On the last M.o.t they were an advisory now they are good.
