Has anyone else had this happened to their headlights and do you know how to fix it?
It's a Volvo. If that matters.
Thanks for any advice!

    Hi Luke, hubby says you can diy with a product from most auto resellers like Repco, Supercheap etc. It is a three part process or you can pay an aftermarket professional would charge about $75 per headlight in Brisbane.

    We have a mechanical workshop and it is a common problem with all plastic headlights :))

    I can cope with a three part process if it saves me a chunk of cash. Thanks Louise!

    My husband used a cut & polish paste to clean my lights worked a charm!

    let us know luke, if you are talking strictly fog, can you use the sheets you use on your eye glasses?

    I did it! Finally!

    Having tried toothpaste and @tarotlova's suggestion of a cut & polish paste, I eventually went with @LouieT's idea and found a 3M branded 3-part process involving a power drill to spin a range of circular sandpapers and sponges with a paste applied to the latter.

    It really did go well, though took at least an hour on each light.

    It looks like this and cost around $50



    Video Instructions where handy too...



    Thanks for all your help, Houzzers!
