How to Restore a Headlight Reflector?

2017-04-18

The headlight reflectors inside your vehicle headlight assembly amplify the brightness of your headlight bulbs. If foggy and dull, however, the headlight reflectors will not function properly. Although the best restoration method is to have a professional re-plate the reflectors, you can partially restore the reflectors at home with an imitation polish. The results will be less bright than a full restoration, but will significantly improve the performance. Expect a do-it-yourself restoration for both headlight assemblies to take you a full afternoon.

 

Turn off your vehicle. Prop open the hood.

 

Unplug the two wiring harnesses on the rear of the headlight assembly. Pull off the rubber shroud from the rear of the headlight assembly.

 

Put on latex gloves. Disengage the metal retaining clips, securing the headlight bulbs, by pressing the clips inward. Pull out the low and high beam headlight bulbs.
