Smoked lens - need help for replacement

Post by Cristache39 »

Hello,

I’ve decided to go and check the lens of my headlights because i’m not satisfied of the visibility.

I went to one of the best from my city who reconditions headlights and just gave me the news that the lens are smoked after putting a new xenon bulb.

Looking on the system he told me that he is not sure how everything works there, he never changed at this type of headlight. He advice me to buy a broken one in order to look on it and see if he can mount new lens or not. He explained me more but it’s hard for me to reproduce it further for you.

It’s impossible to find a broke one 😅
Maybe some of you opened an headlight and has some knowledge, is it possible to replace the lens? Is it difficult? Maybe some pictures with the headlight opened, anything 🙂

Cheers!
