Why Are My Headlights Experiencing Issues?

We frequently come across vehicles with headlights that are scratched, foggy, or hazy making their way to our workshop. These types of problems typically stem from three main factors:

Oxidation—Extended exposure to UV rays can cause car headlights to develop a yellowed appearance. This is especially common among vehicles that are not stored in a garage or protected from direct sunlight.

Water Vapor—When the watertight seal surrounding the headlight becomes worn or damaged, it creates an opportunity for water vapor to condense on the inner side of the acrylic lens. This poses a significant hazard, particularly when driving at night, as it obstructs visibility.

Driving Conditions—Every day, your vehicle encounters various elements on the road such as dust, dirt, and rocks. These encounters can result in scratches and scrapes on the lens, gradually diminishing the effectiveness of your headlights over time.

Restoring Clarity: Benefits of Headlight Restoration

In addition to making your car look more aesthetically pleasing, restoring your headlights can offer a multitude of perks including the following:

Improved Visibility: Your headlights can become cloudy, yellowed, or oxidized over time, which can reduce their effectiveness in providing sufficient light during nighttime driving. Our headlight restoration service helps remove the buildup of dirt, grime, and oxidation, resulting in improved visibility and safer driving conditions.

Enhanced Safety: Clear and bright headlights are crucial for safe driving, as they allow you to see obstacles, pedestrians, and other vehicles on the road, especially in low-light conditions. By restoring your headlights, you can ensure optimal lighting performance, reducing the risk of accidents.

Extended Headlight Lifespan: Restoring headlights can extend their lifespan by removing the contaminants and oxidation that cause deterioration. Regular maintenance and restoration can help prevent the need for premature headlight replacement, saving you money in the long run.

Our Headlight Restoration Process

Headlights are one of the first things people notice about your car, so they must look their absolute best. Our restoration method is designed to give your headlights a makeover that will make you look twice.

Thorough Inspection Of Headlights

Our headlight restoration process begins with a comprehensive inspection of your headlights. Our skilled technicians carefully examine the headlights, looking for signs of oxidation, yellowing, scratches, cracks, or chips in the plastic. We also check the functionality of the bulbs and replace any that are out at no extra cost. If there are any cracks or chips in the plastic, we’ll remove them and fill them with specially formed-resin using advanced tools. We ensure that the headlights are crack-free before we move on to the sanding procedure

Cleaning The Headlights To Remove Debris

We use a special cleaning solution that is applied with an orbital buffer. This process helps to loosen any built-up dirt and grime and also helps to prevent any scratching or damage to the headlight during the rest of the process.

Wet Sanding To Remove Imperfections

One way wet sanding is helpful is because it easily removes all the imperfections and makes the surface as smooth as new. There is hardly any need for polishing and buffing after wet sanding. However, it can also end up scratching the lens if done by an amateur. Our technicians will ensure that your lenses are protected during this step by applying a protective coating before beginning work on them.

Polishing For A Clear And Shiny Finish

The next step is polishing the headlights using industry-leading products from  3M, Adam’s Polishes, and Meguiar’s. This step helps remove even the most minor scratch and reduce the signs of oxidation. Once the polishing process is complete, we apply a clear coat to protect against future damage from UV rays, water spots, and road grime. Finally, we apply a protective coating that prevents future oxidation from occurring.

Frequently Asked Question

On average, headlight restoration takes about 15-20 minutes per headlight. Larger or more challenging headlights may require 30-40 minutes per lens, while smaller ones can be done in around 10 minutes per lens.
Headlight restoration should not cause any damage to the paint or other parts of your car. At Executive auto detailing, we exercise cautious use of products and techniques to avoid any mess. If you have any concerns, you can directly talk to our automotive specialists.

I had them service detail my BMW X3 and Maurice did a phenomenal job! Took his time with the exterior just as much as the interior and got it looking like it’s ready for the showroom. The tires and the rims haven’t looked this good since i got the car. Great work!

I can’t even explain how amazing my vehicle looked when it was done. Life happens at times and it had been left on the back burner. It was a mess and creating stress and anxiety that left my emotions more of a mess too! It looks better than the day I bought it at the dealership 4 YEARS AGO, inside and out! No joke. Finding words to express my gratefulness was, in itself a chore because Thank you just doesn’t cover it, but that’s all I can say. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
