Headlight Restoration & Headlight Repair
Your vehicle’s headlights are constantly exposed to the worst elements and toughest conditions. It should come as no surprise when they crack, become dull or fail. Headlights are an integral part of your vehicle and should always be maintained to increase visibility for you and other drivers during the early mornings, nights and foggy weather. When your car, SUV, truck or RV needs new headlights, the auto glass specialists at Glass Doctor® are here to help! Contact our experts today for fast, professional acrylic headlight repair and replacement services.
What’s Wrong with My Headlight?
At Glass Doctor, we often see scratched, foggy or cloudy headlights drive into our garage. This type of damage is commonly caused by three key factors:
- Oxidation: Car headlights can become yellowed by prolonged exposure to UV rays. This is particularly common for vehicles that are not stored in a garage.
- Water vapor: If the watertight seal around the headlight is worn or damaged, water vapor can condense on the inside of the acrylic lens. This is particularly dangerous during nighttime driving.
- Driving conditions: Your car encounters dust, dirt and rocks on the road each day. Run-ins with debris can scratch and scrape the lens, reducing the effectiveness of your headlight over time.
Headlight Lens Restoration System
If your headlights are scratched, foggy, cracked or unexpectedly dim, it’s time to call Glass Doctor. Like all exterior surfaces, acrylic headlights can be degraded by harsh weather like rain, snow and bright sunlight. While the light mechanism and the light bulb may eventually require replacement, your vehicle’s acrylic lenses could be the main cause of the problems you’re experiencing, and can often be repaired or restored.
