Proper Care and Maintenance Tips for Your Chevrolet Cavalier Headlight
Your Chevrolet Cavalier headlight keeps you safe on the road. It's designed to be tough but that's not enough to keep it from deteriorating over time. Give your headlight the extra love and care that it deserves. Take note of these tips to keep your Chevrolet Cavalier headlight well-maintained:
- Clean your headlights regularly.
Cleaning and polishing your headlights on a regular basis will keep damage at bay. Use mild car cleaner or regular toothpaste to clean the dirt and grime off your lenses. After you've completely cleaned and dried off your headlights, buff it with a mild polish to keep it looking shiny and crisp. Be sure to use non-abrasive cloth to prevent scratching the lens.
- Make sure the seals are in good condition.
Routinely check for holes on the headlight's seal and make sure that it still fits snugly around the edges. Doing this prevents water from seeping into and building up inside your headlight. If you find holes on the seals, cover them up using a silicone spray, but be sure not to get any of the material on the bulb. If the seals are already worn out beyond repair, replace them with a new one of the same size.
- Avoid replacing just one bulb.
Over time, one of your headlights is likely to have its bulb busted. Keep in mind that even if you only have one broken bulb, it's still recommended to replace both of your bulbs to be sure that they both have the same brightness level.
- Perform regular check-ups.
As always, keeping an eye out for any damage and fixing them as soon as you can is still the best way to avoid major headlight problems. Look for condensation, haze, cracks, scratches, and rust spots on your headlight assembly. Repairing these problems is an easy DIY task you can do at the comfort of your own home.
- Put on headlight film covers.
Getting protective headlight films is an affordable way to lessen the damage brought by physical impact. These are available in various colors, so you also have the option to customize your ride. Get the specifications of your headlight to ensure that the cover you'll be getting will be a perfect fit. Install it when your headlights are clean and dry.
