Say Hello to Brighter Headlights: Ford Expedition Headlight Maintenance Tips
Do you experience difficulty when driving in dark areas? One possible reason is that your car's headlights might have become spent. Damaged or faulty headlights release little or no light beam at all, making it harder for you to see farther into the road. If you desire to extend the service lifespan of your Ford Expedition headlight, you need to be consistent in doing these tips:
- Eliminate surface scratches when you see them.
Your vehicle's headlights are constantly exposed to road debris such as tiny rocks. These pebbles can hit onto the headlight's surface and leave it with scratches, making the headlight look unsightly. To restore the shine on your headlights, sand these scratches away with a combination of coarse and fine-grit sandpaper. Use the coarse-grit sandpaper first to remove surface imperfections like the scratches. Then, follow it up with the fine grit sandpaper to clear out any residue and reveal a smooth, shiny surface.
- Keep the headlights clean and dirt-free.
Your SUV's cleanliness dictates how long its components can be of service to you. If you seldom clean your vehicle, various problems may arise, including a busted headlight. That is why it's paramount to keep dirt, dust, and other debris off your headlights. Remember that car parts work best when they are clean. So whenever you have time, allot some of your attention to the headlights. Wash them with soap and water, and make sure you dry them thoroughly. Plus, you can add some aftermarket polish on the headlights' surface to revive their glamorous look.
- Remove haziness with an aftermarket polish.
You can either get a prepackaged polishing kit or buy a sandpaper and polishing compound individually. Just be sure that you pick one that's safe to use on your Ford Expedition headlight. Using a clean rag, apply the polish on the lens surface and let it dry out. Reapply as much polish as you deem required, but avoid getting the compound on the paint of nearby surfaces. With regular cleaning and polishing, your car's headlights are sure to become sturdier and last longer.
