Jeep Wrangler YJ Tail Light
Tips for Jeep Wrangler YJ Tail Light Maintenance
The Jeep Wrangler YJ has been a staple off-road vehicle for different adventures. For years, it served a variety of drivers ranging for the youth earning their first vehicles up to the hard core off-road enthusiasts. Part of these adventures is remaining visible even when darkness sets in. This is the job of the headlights and the tail lights. While your headlights illuminate your path ahead, your tail lights warns the traffic behind you that you are ahead of them. It is therefore of utmost importance that you take care of the condition of each of your tail lights. Here are some tips on the Jeep Wrangler YJ tail light maintenance. Note each one to preserve the condition and function of your tail light longer.
- Wash your tail light with water regularly.
In cleaning almost everything in your Jeep Wrangler's exterior, the use of water is never forgotten. The clean water that gushes forth from your hose is like a saving grace to your tail light lens. It gets rinsed of the light layers of dust and dirt. There are times that water can already take out what's needed. However, there are also times when it needs more than just hosing down.
- Scrub the lens to a shine using a sponge or wash mitt.
To remove the particles that still remain after hosing your tail light with water, put on some elbow grease and do a little scrubbing. It is best to scrub the tail light lens while it is still wet. Soak a sponge or wash mitt in your car shampoo solution. Apply the solution to the surface by gentle scrubs. Apply just the right amount of pressure to avoid putting on scratches on your part. Scratches and haze can render your tail light ineffective.
- Brush hard-to-reach areas to fully clean your tail light.
Sometimes, scrubs using a sponge or wash mitt is not enough. You have to resort to a small brush to reach hard-to-reach areas of your tail light. Like the sponge, you have to soak it in your car shampoo solution. Rinse it there every so often to get rid of whatever dirt your brush got.
