Oh Say, Can You See? - Are Your Headlamps in Good Shape?

Autumn is here and with it come shorter days and longer nights. Daylight savings ends in a couple of weeks and that means more driving in the dark and at dusk. Your vehicle’s headlamps are like eyeglasses. Dirt and grime accumulate so gradually we don’t notice and before we know it, our vision is hindered. Headlamp restoration is important in prolonging the life of your vehicle’s exterior lighting system. Poor upkeep could result in replacement and, depending on your vehicle, that can be costly.     



Here are some headlamp maintenance tips from Robert's Collision & Repair in Monterey:


  • Check your headlamps regularly. If they’re starting to yellow, wipe them off with a mildly abrasive cleaner. Be sure it’s not too abrasive - you don’t want to scratch them.

  • Have your headlamp alignment checked. Be sure your headlamps are both pointing in the right direction. Bring your vehicle to Robert’s Collision & Repair and let us check them for you. We can make precision adjustments to ensure they properly light up the road ahead.

  • Have your headlamps restored. Robert’s Collision & Repair can fully inspect your headlamps then buff out the dirt and grime blocking your vision.


Clean, bright-shining headlamps enable you to see more than the road ahead, they enable you to see smaller objects on that road. Proper headlamp illumination is critical to safe driving.

Now is a good time to have them checked.
