Question about 2005 Cadillac Catera

1 Answer

Local mechanics have stated I need new headlamp covers due to my car being so old; there is a opaque film on the inside of the covers and I have a difficult time seeing at night, even with the brights on. In bright, the lights only project a short distance. Do I need to replace the light covers or what? I own a 1997 Cadillac Catera.

How do I get to and clean the inside of both headlamp glasses because my car failed the MOT because the inside of the headlamp units are very dirty. Not the reflector but the front plastic cover.


NORMALLY THE ISSUE IS WITH THE OUTSIDE OF THE PLASTIC COVER. THEY CAN BE CLEANED WITH HEADLIGHT CLEANING KITS FROM ANY PARTS STORE.IF THE PROBLEM IS REALLY ON THE INSIDE THEN REPLACEMENT IS NEEDED

this sort of thing happens a lot here in in spain so ask a local repair shop to look and maybe fit a new one or put some reflective film on the glass but make sure the film has the homoglonation mark in it or the vehicle will not pass its yearly mechanical inspection

On my 99 Audi A6 Avant my front covers of the headlamps have gone opaque, can these be cleaned in any way?


Yes they make kits to re-polish them, the haze is oxidation. Contact your local auto parts store for the kits that are available or order them on line, don't go cheap, get a good quality kit. Autozone sells a good one follow this link to read about it.

2006 Envoy XL low beam headlights will not come on at all. Went to Auto Zone and change the bulbs...still will not come on. Two weeks ago Pep Boys put in a new ignition stating the original one had sign...


CHECK INSIDE YOUR FUSE BOX (USUALLY LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD). LOOK FOR THE RELAYS THAT CONTROL THE HEADLAMPS. TRY TO CHANGE PLACES WITH THE ONE'S THAT THE NUMBER MATCHES. GENERAL MOTORS SEEMS TO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THESE. THE LOCATOR PICTURE WILL BE INSIDE THE LID COVERING THE FUSE PANEL BOX.

How do I remove the headlight cover to clean the inside part of the headlight cover. It appears to be fogging making the lights seem dim.


you are talking aftermarket headligth covers? , the head lite itself cant not be taken appart, your best bet is to drill a small hole in the lower part ofthe headlight so moisture can be release, this will help but in the long run you'll need to replace it

I have a volvo s70 yr 2000 engine light giving a transmission code so it wont pass emissions here in georgia car runs fine was driving it everday volvo stated I need a new trans any suggestions to get it...


We need to walk through a few things. What is the state of your transmission fluid. In good condition the fluid should a vibrant pink and be clear. The smell should be a pleasant almost fragrant light oil. If your fluid is brown and/opaque then this indicative of wear. The smell is an unpleasant over-cooked burnt aroma. The brown colour is from the band clutches slipping and the friction wears the lining down and overheats the material - brown and burnt basically. If the fluid is opaque filter some of it through a kitchen paper towel. If there is grey sludge this is likely to be aluminium alloy. Pass a magnet over the sludge paste, if particles cling to the magnet these are flakes of steel. If you remove the bottom tray to the gear box the frst thing you see is the underside of the metal filter. If you remove this you can see the sort of material trapped in it. If it is just over cooked fluid then a filter and fluid change would be good place to start. If there is particulate sludge this is an indication of imminent failure. You do not mention the code specifically. If it is a selector solenoid then this can be replaced without the huge expense of a new transmission. In the old days a mechanic would know what the the fault was and try to repair the part. Subsequently this has given way to just replacing the part, then to a strategy of replacing parts until it works, to finally a situation of lets replace the whole assembly!

Tire pressure headlights are not clear


32 is the tire pressure for all 4 tires and no they headlights should very transparent. There is a film on the face that causes this. Instead of buying new lights (most mechanics will suggest this) go to auto parts store and buy a kit for restoring the headlights. In this kit there should be some sand paper, resin, cloths, and a clear coat sealer. I use these kits allt he time makes it look bran spanking new. Some of them even have a 10 year warranty on the finish.

Good luck
