How to clean yellow headlights?

Recommended Posts

So my headlights are fairly yellow. I've tried the toothpaste trick but that didn't seem to do anything. It seems as though most of the yellowing is on the inside of the headlights.

Anyway of cleaning or am I just having to buy a new set of lights?

You can't. That's UV damage. You can sand it off using some medium grit paper, then use a fine paper to make them nice and clear again. Problem is if they're yellow then the UV Protection has worn away on the light therefore in a few months they'll be yellow again. Never ending cycle I'm afraid.

The best thing you can do is replace the lights really. Go a scrappy, get some for cheap, or buy some brand new ones if you're that way inclined.
