If the lenses are getting cloudy, they can be restored. Easiest way is to start by wet sanding the lenses with a fine grit sand paper, about 200 grit, then working progressively finer in about 3 stages. After sanding, if you want them even clearer a high speed buffer with cutting compound then polishing compound works well.

Civic headlight restoration


HTML clipboard Honda civic head lights are known for their yellowing look, They begin to lose their luster. Here is a simple trick for fixing your yellow, tarnished headlights. Don't get stuck paying for an expensive headlight repair kit ; save some money and give this a try. It will definitely give you great results

-Tools needed - buffer, terry cloth bonnets, Rubbing compound, polishing compound and a any type of polish.

- Procedures - The first thing you will need to do is clean the headlight of any debris so that when you are buffing it you do not cause any deep scratches in the lenses. Next apply a generous amount of the rubbing compound to the buffer and begin buffing the lens with an even back and forth motion until all the compound has turned into a powdery substance. Then wipe it off with a small cloth. Now use the polishing compound to smooth the lens using the same buffing method. The last step is to apply the polish with a dry cloth and rub in circles until the polish is even distributed over the lens, I prefer to use Scratch Out polish for a great shine. visit fix my civic .net for more tips and tricks

How can I remove the headlight lens?


The lens is sealed to the body , not to be removed. Replacement of burnt out bulbs is done by going inside the engine compartment , and removing the bulb from the back of the headlight housing. If your lens is cloudy or yellowed , it can be polished with a buffer and a mild polishing compound.

You can polish the headlight lenses to make them clear again. You can buy a kit with polishing compound and a buffing wheel, or use the same polishing compound that you use to take scratches and haze out of your cars paint, or silver, brass or copper polish would work as well. You can even mix some tooth paste and baking soda, use a damp rag and rub the paste over the lens buffing really hard and fast, then wipe the lens off and buff it with a clean dry rag. Do one lens at a time and the tooth paste polish trick takes more work than polishing compound but it does work.

Passat headlight failed warrant


I think u r referring to a milky, opaque look, a big change from the new clear lens u once had. There are a number of products on the market, which involve polishing the lens to bring it back to clear. As u may have found out, lens replacement is rather expensive, so this method of polishing will save u $. I'll post a website in a moment for u. countrycurt0
