Headlights: How to Repair them Inexpensively

Aug 12, 2008
The growing statistics concerning accidents during night time accidents is quite disturbing within an increase in casualties. The most common reason for these incidents is damaged headlights, a greater cause than the number of accidents caused by drunk drivers.

Therefore, proper repair must be made to insufficient headlights. Those cars with dim or muggy headlights are in danger due to a greater chance of causing an accident.

There are many factors that contribute such as polluted rain, sun's harmful rays, snow, and strong rain. Hence, headlights can crack and given that they are made from plastic, they can turn yellow and oxidize.

Dirty headlights reflect on yourself which doesn't say much. So having cleaning them up may a good idea stylistically. They can also be quite dangerous since it prevents you from seeing properly on a poorly lit street. You or others may be struck without notice because of poor visibility. It is very important to repair them which can easily be done yourself at home.
To change your dirty headlights, you can easily purchase a headlight repair kit at your local automobile store.

If there are no stores accessible, the Internet is another popular option where you can buy the repair kit within the comfort of your home. The kit has a cleaner in it to get rid of any old grime.

To take out any water, you have to take the lens off and make a hole with your drill into the inner chamber under the headlight. The water should come right out but to make sure, use the dehumidifier or air conditioner to make sure it is dry inside.

Smaller issues that may arise such as holes or cracks can be easily patched up with plastic resin which is transparent so no one actually sees it when it is applied. If there are worse conditions, replacement isn't that difficult either. If you have a halogen bulb within your headlight, then you have to take the hood off and look inside for a black knob. The bulb is connected to that black knob. All you need to do is unscrew it and change it with a new one.

Restoring your headlights is a simple and inexpensive task that you can most probably fix. If there is a serious problem, you may have to visit a mechanic but most likely the issues are not as serious as you may think. Revamping your headlights can be done at home by following simple instructions to improve the look and safety of your vehicle.
