1. Thoroughly wash the headlight. This is best performed with a microfibre cloth and a mild detergent. Then cover the area around the headlights with adhesive tape to protect the paint.

2. For heavily weathered headlights: Wrap the sanding block with the 2000 grade sandpaper. Wet the sandpaper and sand using a horizontal motion until no more coarse irregularities can be seen. Then wet the 3000 grade sandpaper and sand the headlight a using vertical motion. Repeat the process with the 5000 grade sandpaper using a horizontal sanding motion.

3. Wash off any residues from the sanding process.  Now apply some polishing paste to the headlight and polish to a high gloss using the polishing cloth and a vertical motion. Remove the adhesive tape from around the headlight and clean. Now seal the headlight. Apply QUIXX Headlight Sealer from the tube to the headlights and spread it evenly with a cloth. Allow the sealant to work for about 5 to 10 minutes until a dry layer is formed.

4. Polish the headlight to a high gloss with a clean, soft and dry cloth. The headlight should now have an attractive appearance with no yellowing or unclear spots on the glass. If the results are not satisfactory please start again from Step 2. For maximum protection, repeat every 3 months.

Product information "Headlight Restoration Kit"

Successfully preparing your car for sale does not only depend on immaculate paintwork without stone chips, scratches or scrapes, but your car should also be equipped with bright headlights. Headlights often become dull, milky, yellowed or scratched, and not only on classic cars.  In Germany alone there are hundreds of thousands of cars on the road with dull headlights and impaired visibility. Obscured headlights are also a safety risk.

Luckily, headlights in Germany do not become as yellowed and milky as those on cars in Spain or other hot and sandy regions. However, plastic headlights on cars in northern Europe are affected by sun, dirt, acid rain and salt and these do turn yellow, become cloudy and become obscured over time.

This is not only unattractive to look at; the safety issue is of much greater importance:

  • Cloudiness and yellowing drastically reduce the headlight brightness.
  • The ability to see and be seen in the dark progressively becomes worse.
  • This reduction in the ability to see and be seen makes you a hazard to all other road users  

Fine cracks and scratches also cause the light from the headlight to be unevenly distributed. The consequence is that other road users are unnecessarily dazzled when driving in the dark.

TÜV may also put a spoke in your wheels. An otherwise well maintained used vehicle may fail a roadworthiness inspection if the headlights are weathered or yellowed. Having to pay the costs for a repeat inspection, usually around 100 Euro, is really annoying. And then there is the wasted time. Matt or yellowed headlights can make a bad impression on a planned car sale and deter potential buyers.

Avoid costly replacement.

Of course, you can put your vehicle in a used car repair shop -  that's not too expensive (some repairers or garages offer headlight repairs from 15 euros per headlight).

But: You will have to do without your car for a few days and possibly borrow/pay for a replacement vehicle, which is inconvenient and expensive.

Many garages will probably also suggest that the headlamp is completely replaced, and as it is not possible to replace the glass on many headlights the whole headlamp assembly has to be replaced, for Audi or Mercedes costs (for a Xenon headlight with cornering lamp) can quickly add up to 1,000 euros per side.

Bright headlights in the blink of an eye.

But we at QUIXX have something for you: Our QUIXX Headlight Restoration Kit restores matt and yellowed headlights to their as new condition. You also don't need to be an auto repair professional to achieve beautiful results.

As our motto says: Repair it. Yourself! You can also treat your vehicle like a professional.

QUIXX cleans & permanently seals.

In principle the QUIXX Headlight Restoration Kit works in the same way as a powerful car wash; any grime and yellowing adhering to the headlight is scrubbed away and the headlights are clear once more. The highly effective polish efficiently removes the dirt and grime particles caused by weathering. If stubborn dirt and grime is present these are removed by wet sanding with fine-grained sandpaper and our power polish leaving the headlights shining like new.

The headlight sealer also included in the kit ensures that the headlights are then permanently protected.

Its unique formula creates a long-lasting, weatherproof and detergent-resistant high-gloss protective layer that protects against the effects of the environment.

The smooth, dirt-repellent sealer also keeps the headlights clean for longer. Used regularly, the UV protection it contains significantly reduces yellowing and clouding.

The bad effects of yellowed headlights at a glance:

  • Poor appearance
  • Low resale value
  • Reduced headlight brightness / A danger for you and other road users
  • Problems during the annual roadworthiness / TÜV inspection
