Car headlight refurbishment/restoration.


  If your headlights have gone cloudy or yellow in colour, they could mean your car will fail its' next MOT, as well as obviously reducing your night driving vision.

Auto Brite Smart Repairs can restore your headlights, without the need to replace them, saving you time, money and unnecessary land fill.

Headlight refurbishment/restoration, the process.

Over a period of time, effects of the sun's harmful UV rays, weather, and road debris will degrade the look and function of your acrylic headlight lenses. Auto Brite will sand away all the damaged layer, through reducing grades of sandpaper, before polishing them up like new again. The whole process takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete a pair of headlights and the difference is dramatic. We apply a protective coating to ensure the finish lasts as long as possible. 

There are kits on the market which claim to restore cloudy headlights, which may work, but would require a competent person to carry the repair out successfully. In the wrong hands, it could cause more harm than good. In a similar way there are touch up kits for paintwork, it is probably a job best left to a professional.

And no, unfortunately toothpaste will not restore your headlights as we have been told before, however, they will smell nice!

We can often fit headlight polishing in very quickly, so if your car has just failed its' MOT due to this, give us a call and we will save you the expense of replacements.​
