    Why Are Your Car's Headlights Cloudy?

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Today, auto headlights are not made of glass but rather made of polycarbonate or plastic. Although this material is lighter and more durable, it is prone to oxidation, which causes auto headlights to become cloudy. Here’s how oxygenation is caused and how you can get it repaired.

    UV Light

    One of the primary causes of auto headlight oxidation is UV light. As the sun beats down on your car over time, your headlights will probably experience microcracks and color change. Professionals at an auto body shop can remove the top layer of plastic from your headlights, which will remove the scratches. They can also polish the lens to make the plastic stronger and more resistant to scratches in the future.

    Debris Buildup

    Polycarbonate headlights are made of a porous material that absorbs heat on the inside and outside of the lens. Because of this, they are also prone to absorbing debris from the road, which makes the headlights cloudy. Cloudy headlights reduce your visibility of the road and increase the road glare that oncoming cars experience. Auto body shop professionals will be able to remove the film on your lens left by debris.

    Atmospheric Chemicals

    Another thing that can cause headlight oxidation is atmospheric pollution. Studies have found that acid rain not only leaves spots on your auto’s paint, but also your headlights. If you cannot remove the blotches on your headlights caused by acid rain, you’ll have to visit an auto body shop to get them removed.

    If your headlights are oxidized or cloudy, you are probably losing about 30% of your headlight illumination! For first-rate, affordable headlight restoration and repair service in the Salt Lake City area, come to Dave’s Body Shop in West Jordan, UT. For more information, give us a call at (801) 566-3906.
