First of all, xterra!!! Its nice to see another xterra owner on CT! And I had a similar problem but the headlight cleaning products and toothpaste should work well, either one of them :)
Haha yeah I’ve had her foe the past 2 years really reliable never any problems. And thanks im going to give the toothpaste one a shot! (:
Sounds good! Hope it works out for you! And ya those xterras are really durable and reliable! I love mine! had for a year now! :)
Yes they really are! Can almost throw anything at them and they’ll keep on going. Had mine for 2 years
Try the tooth paste trick it worked beutifully on mine, and ive also heared polish works if not get one of those purpouse made cleaners for the lights they go for around 10-20 usd
Toothpaste?? I haven’t heard of that one. Just rub it on there?
are your headlight lenses made from glass or plastic?
You see tooth paste has abrasive qualities(like very smooth sanding paper) and can be used to restore plastic headlights(up to a degree),
However if you have glass lenses this wont work. the best way to go is to either buy a kit from a shop or use a very high grade sand paper (1200 or greater, with water) and then use car polish. Just make sure to tape off everything around the headlight.
There made of plastic. Thanks I’m going to give it a try first thing tomorrow!
I agree with david thats the best way to go and also take into consideration the amount of hazey it is if its really bad definatly go with a purpose made cleaner
WD trick? wtf?
Don’t do toothpaste, that’s not permanent go to ammy nyc on youtube and search for headlight restoration.
Cut & polish. Toothpaste worked for about 5mins, sandpaper fogged them up, but cut & polish made them almost like new, PLUS you can cut & polish the whole car to restore the paint. Rub it in, rub it out. Done.
Toothpaste worked pretty good for me i did it every time i washed her for about a month (4-5) times and its been about a year now and they still look good.
Have a look at the Mighty Car mods vid they did on restoring them
A humble avocado will do the trick
