Re:




Here's a pretty good video on the matter, generally any abrasive will remove the oxidization using high grit sand paper + wet sanding or a cutting compound generally used on paint is pretty good as well. Make sure you clean it properly after though, my brother used a high cut compound, wet sanded and polished his headlights on his Astra which the same thing happens too then covered the headlights with a protective clear tint, then also put headlight protectors over the lights so rocks didn't damage the film.

Re: Head Light Repairs - Buff & Polish


My two cents,

Just bought my 04' Xtrail and it had the fairly common yellowed headlights, which looks pretty ordinary.

I looked into the whole toothpaste/wet+dry paper technique and went out to get what I needed.

In Super cheap I came across a tin of Armorall cut+polish cream, which I bought to finish off with after I had done my wet+dry.

I got home and thought I would just give it a go with the Armorall, as it says it removes oxidation.... and you know what... it bloody does!

I went over the headlights with it and decided it wasn't worth the hastle of wet+dry because it had done such a good job by itself.

It isn't perfect but for the minimal effort required it is a decent result.

Cheers, Matt

Re:


You can't anymore Jason, these used to be sold through the forum shop and the last pair was sold about a month ago. They have been discontinued from production. Sorry (do a forum search on Type AX Eyelids)

I restore mine every so often.
I use [sign in to see URL] sort of polish paste which I rub using a cloth.
Looks new...
