When to Call a Professional
There are ways to clean your headlights, however overtime you will need to take them to an autobody shop to get them cleared or replaced. They do get pitted from sand and you may not have the light to see the way you should on dark roads.
If you want to make sure the job is done right the first time, it might make sense to call a professional off the bat versus doing it yourself. One sign that you should bring your car in? Scratches or scuffs on your headlights.
Abrasives can make those scratches or scuffs even worse, damaging your headlights further. When you take your car into a shop for headlight restoration instead, they can buff away these imperfections and make your headlights look good as new. Plus, your headlights won’t just look good – they’ll also be protected against rain, dirt, and more, potentially saving you money on repairs down the road.
