Yellowing headlights


Devie

Recommended Posts

Any of u guys hv this prob? Send my headlights to get restored but also cannot. Still hints of yellowness. They tried all sorts of cutting/polishing paste to buff out the yellow.

Anyone else too? Or am I the only joker cannot restore my headlights!! Lol

Bro, u really take care liao... Headlights polish until smooth smooth :P carpark was too dark. I couldn't see for sure if the yellow wasn't from he inside. :D

S-Class also talking about the same issue. Vwscoob has tried out DrGlass.

Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

I tried everything.

Tried toothpaste , brasso, autosol, autoglym , restoration kit, send to exotic werks for restore and see them do. They still can't polish the yellow ness away.

Only thing I'm short of doing as read from online is using sandpaper lor....

Tigershark:

thx for dropping by n having a look. Yup my headlights are super smooth till ants can slip off. Polished so many many times already.

-anyway why never " ding dong" my door bell, come by drink kopi la next time. Dun paisey k!!

Think I'm gonna try wet sanding the next time and if that doesn't work, it's definitely yellowing from the inside.

Hi Devie ... In my industry, if the yellowing is due the UV reaction with the polycarbonate lens of the headlamp (i am assuming the lens of the head light is made of polycarbonate instead of acrylic), then no amount of polishing will help. Maybe if some guru can advice the material of the lens otherwise, i do not suggest you sand it as it may also affect the structural integrity of the headlamp.

my 2 cents, hope this can help you in someway.

regards

Bro try calling benzline auto for new set of headlights. i called in to check for ex stock they selling at $1100 per side exclude installation that is.

i bought one side only as my car was badly damaged in an accident. hence workshop change one side as they claim that right hand side was damage while left hand side is working fine.. 

No pics yet as car still in workshop ... sigh
