With winter coming, most people know they need to soon be checking their anti-freeze levels, car tire tread depth and stocking through to de-icer. But one facet of their vehicle has, in recent years, turn into a topic for concern while driving on dark winter days, reports headlight restorer specialist Steve Roberts. “The problem began when manufacturers switched over from glass headlights to a more aesthetic multi-light housing which integrated nicely with the style of the automobile. Those headlight covers shall no longer be made from glass and there’s the problem” he explains. Modern polycarbonate plastics are likely eventually to become cloudy, yellowed or just scratched and pitted, which ends up in a gradual but drastic reduction in the illumination power the bulb. Drivers don’t necessarily notice this but with time their capability to operate a vehicle safely in the dark has been undermined by their failing headlights.

“It’s as though their headlights are suffering from cataracts” says Roberts, “but fortunately there are some effective solutions, providing drivers spend some time to check their cars and invest a little time to treat their headlight problems.” Roberts advocates a three step want to be safe this winter:

 Drivers must be sure they are regularly cleaning their headlights. A couple minute swill with warm soapy water along with a soft cloth is perhaps all it will take.

 Before the nights get too cold, headlight operation should be checked, with attention receiving to the scattered light round the headlight cover. Minimum scatter means the lighting is working as they should.

 Too much scatter, or a yellow hue means more tasks are necessary to restore the headlights. There are numerous of proprietary solutions available but a straightforward trick is to apply toothpaste like a mildly abrasive polish and car wax.

A little purchase of time is all it will take to drive a little more safely this winter.
