Remove the whole head light assembly, a mixture of water and laundry soap powder inside and shake it vigorously, rinse, blow dry install, if external you have to do some rubbing with a rubbing compound with cloth.

Maybe there is a small crack or air can seep into the headlights.

try to acquire a sealant (clear) and seal the sides of the headlights and check the rubbers on the light fixtures.

hope it helps.

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

Fog lights dont work


On my Jag the headlights had to be on and the engine running.
Does your owners manual say anything about these requirements ?
Have you checked the fuses to see if they have power ?

Can't turn on the fog lights


hi from uk if you are meaning rear fog light/s ? they will be on the switch that has a picture of lamp with horizontal lines ? these will only work with headlight on also if you are meaning front drive/fogs then the same goes for these ie a similar switch near to lights switch or you may have to turn on h/lights then pull outwards the actual switch as on uk cars? the idea being if weather conditions req fogs then h/lights must be on also preventing driving on fogs only and no obligatory side/tail and h/lights here in uk hope this assists you locating switch ? wish you merry xmas
