Hi!!

Check for a rubber piece (seal), that goes between the headlight housing and the socket. It may be missing, broken or installed incorrectly. Check the pasenger side to see the rubber seal. I piece is in place, check socket's (2) locking tabs and headlight housing, some times one breaks and no water tight seal is achieved.

Don't forget to rate this Post. Good Luck..

The circuit load is much higher with the HID lights, you need to rewire the headlights to a large gauge wire.

2003 tiburon keeps blown headlight fuse the second you put it in


Unplug the drivers side headlamp. Install a fuse and see if it blows. If it doesn't replace the headlamp. If it does you will need to start tearing into the harness to find the shorted wire. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Lenses on my 96 merc Sable are so cloudy headlight power is severely diminished. Can these be cleaned?


You'll need the following. Painter's tape or Masking tape, 2000, 2500, 3000 grit sandpaper, bucket of water, headlight polish (PlastX, etc) and microfiber cloths

Mask off around the light so you don't have to worry about sanding your paint if your hand slips.

Soak the sand papers for at least 15 minutes. The more water the better Using the lowest grit, start sanding in ONE DIRECTION ONLY,(side to side). Keep the sandpaper wet and dip it in your bucket of water frequently. Now dry the headlight and it should look all hazy

Switch to the next finer grit, and repeat the step above, but this time go in the OPPOSITE DIRECTION (up and down). Keep using water
Dry it again, and it will look better than the first time.

Repeat the process again with your finest grit. Again, OPPOSITE DIRECTION with plenty of water. Dry it off. It should look relatively new at this point. Remove the tape as it will contain bits of grit from the sandpaper.

Generously apply the headlight polish in a circular motion to the headlight

Using your microfiber cloth, rub off .. repeat several times with FRESH rags until the polish is dry and gone.

Now the headlight will look like new
