Precision Transmission News for South Bend: Headlight Restoration

headlight cleaning South Bend

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

Precision Transmission Answer:
You are right – replacing a headlight assembly can cost hundreds of dollars. Luckily there is something South Bend drivers can do about cloudy headlamps.

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

Because a disproportionate amount of traffic accidents happen at night, smart South Bend drivers make sure they have maximum visibility. Cloudy lenses cut down 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, your South Bend service center (or Precision Transmission) can restore your lenses. Using a combination of special cleaners and polishes, the cloudy and discolored layer is removed. This essential service costs a fraction of replacing the headlight assembly.

How pricey it is will depend on the size of the lens and how badly it is clouded. The treatment plan can be used 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 speak with your personable Precision Transmission technician about options to replace or even upgrade your headlamp bulbs.
