Toyota 4runner Headlight Covers
Quick Fix to Toyota 4runner Headlight Covers
A little imperfection of your Toyota 4runner headlight covers can ruin all the hard work you've done to your vehicle. So it is really important to keep your headlight covers well maintained in time for the show. But if things don't work as planned and the headlight covers prove to be more of a problem than an enhancement, then a little tweaking may be able to do the job. Whether your headlights covers are leaning towards the left or refusing to stay attached onto the headlight lens, here's a quick fix for each headlight cover problem:
Headlight covers don't align perfectly.
If your headlight covers don't align straight, you either have a faulty molded strip or your covers aren't the perfect fit. To remedy this problem, use double-sided tape and place a small strip on the misaligned section of the headlight cover. Align the headlight cover to the headlight lens and press the headlight cover against the lens to correct the alignment.
Headlight covers don't stick to the headlight assembly at all.
The procedure is similar to correcting a misaligned headlight cover, but this time you're going to use a longer double-sided tape. Peel one side of the tape and stick it to the reverse side of the headlight cover. Align the headlight covers to the headlight assembly. When you think you have the right alignment, peel the other side of the tape and press the cover on the headlight lens. This will prevent the headlight cover from falling off.
Headlight covers are scratched.
There are several scratch remover kits available in the market that effectively removes scratches from the headlight covers. If the need is urgent and the scratch remover kit is not available, you can use toothpaste to polish the scratched surface. This may take a while, but it should get the scratch out. Using heat is also an option. This may sound counterintuitive, but plastics have memory. When heat is applied properly, it allows the plastic to go back to its original form. Be careful though, if you don't know what you're doing, stick with toothpaste.
