Headlight Restoration

Headlight Question:

My headlight lenses are all cloudy. I checked with my Bedford vehicle dealership about replacing them and it is very expensive. What else can I do?

Town Hill Auto Sales and Service Answer:

You are right - replacing a headlight assembly can cost hundreds of dollars. Luckily there is something Bedford citizens can do about cloudy headlamps.

First let's talk about why the headlamps are so cloudy. Back in the day, headlights were glass. These were heavy, could crack, and had practical limits as to their shape, so manufacturers started using plastic headlight lenses. Road grime and UV light take a toll on the plastic surface. Over time the lenses get cloudy and discolored. Just look at the vehicles in any parking lot in Bedford and you'll see a lot of that.

Because a disproportionate amount of traffic accidents happen at night, you want to make sure you have maximum visibility. Cloudy lenses reduce the amount of light that gets out on the road, which in turn can really hurt the time you have to respond to hazards in the road.

Fortunately, the technicians at Town Hill Auto Sales and Service can restore your lenses. Using a combination of special cleaners and polishes, the cloudy and discolored layer is removed. This service costs a fraction of replacing the headlight assembly.

How expensive it is will depend on the size of the lens and how badly it is clouded. The service can be done on brake lights, turn signals, and tail lights as well. If it's been over a year since you replaced your headlamp bulbs, they may have started to dim. You can ask your friendly and knowledgeable Town Hill Auto Sales and Service advisor about options to replace or even upgrade your headlamp bulbs.
