A tiny crack? A small piece of lens repair tape or Gorilla crystal clear.
I for one think that $1300 is too much to pay for such a simple repair.This is why cars like the Touareg get a bad wrap. People buy them that can't actually afford them and they turn into giant pieces of ****.
No, you cannot half-ass stick a piece of tape over delicate several hundred dollar xenon bulbs.
A simple repair? The housing of a very expensive and intricate bi-xenon setup has been compromised. The housing comes with all the electronics and servos and auto leveling and motors that turn the light side to side and up and down to follow the road path etc. It's not simple whatsoever.I for one think that $1300 is too much to pay for such a simple repair.
Nobody is suggesting he stick a piece of tape on a xenon bulb, just the plastic lens that covers it.
There should be replacement lenses available.
Lol moisture in a sealed unit is far from normal my man. You have impending HID issues in the future.The OP mentioned a small crack.
My xenons condensate up in certain weather conditions which is normal. My previous BMW was the same.
A small crack repaired with headlight repair tape is acceptable imho.
If you have a tiny crack and it seems to be intact, possibly even watertight (at least for the current time), then I do not see why the rock protection film would not work. In the worst case, it would buy you time.How about that clear stick on headlight protector stuff?
OP is this your old car? View attachment 243255
Use your stimmy to fix your Touareg...
They are not sealed units to that extent no headlight on any car made is as they have ventilation holes which also allows ambient air to be drawn in. I am suprised you dont know this!!Lol moisture in a sealed unit is far from normal my man. You have impending HID issues in the future.
Like I said in my initial reply, people buying these cars that have no real means of buying them. They can afford the face price but not everything else that goes into them. I wouldn't even bat my eye if I had a crack in my headlight and had to buy a new one. Would I be pissed? Of course, I would I'd be outraged. But it wouldn't be a thing to buy a new one and call it done.
It might even save you doing the sandpaper thing down the track.If you have a tiny crack and it seems to be intact, possibly even watertight (at least for the current time), then I do not see why the rock protection film would not work. In the worst case, it would buy you time.
If the crack is an open wound that can pass water, then the tape would be more a band aid for the short term.
