What Causes Fogged Headlights?
The headlight case is made of clear durable plastic. Many people mistake the plastic with glass. However, when switching the headlight on and off, the outer surface reacts with air. Due to the constant change in temperature, oxidation takes place. Over time, you will notice a change in color on the headlight case.
The yellow layer prevents the headlight to illuminate several yards ahead of the vehicle. Hence, it limits the driver’s night vision. It is a serious issue that you should address soon. However, the oxidation doesn’t degrade the headlight case. It only adds a translucent layer that dims the lights.
