HI guys, have any of you noticed any crazing and/or discolouration of the polycarbonate headlight lens? My right one is perfect but I have noticed over the last few months that the left one is getting brown'yellow splotches and is crazing. Any clues? John

Yes, known issue.

I got mine polished by an aircraft fitter who polishes helicopter screens.

Cheaper and as good as a new one Nooby? Was thinking of hitting them up for a warranty claim. John

I was very pleased with the work the guy did and it certainly made them look 99% as good as new.

But, if you can get new lights units warranty, go for it!

Some headlight refinishing kits include a clear solution that you paint on the headlamp after polishing to provide UV protection. Theory is that UV exposure ages the lens and causes the cloudiness.

Just a thought...
