DIY Headlight Care

Functional headlights are a necessity when planning on driving at night or during extremely cloudy days. Not only do the lights illuminate the way for drivers, but they also enable other vehicles to see you on the road. Keeping the lenses clean and clear ensure that the beams shine as brightly as possible.

Using insect repellent containing DEET is one way to cut through the bug carcasses and debris on your headlight lenses. However, care must be taken not to get the fluid on painted surfaces. Spray the repellent on a rag and scrub the lens. When sufficiently clean, use a clean, dry rag to buff the lens dry.

Over time, the lenses commonly become scratched. Eliminating the problem involves rubbing the area using fine grit sandpaper. Other options include getting a headlight restoration kit here at Nashua Kia in Nashua, NH. Come see us for all of your vehicle maintenance needs.
