Tips on Getting the Right Headlight Cover

Headlight covers are inexpensive products that are designed to protect your car's headlights from damage and debris. Hugely popular as an aftermarket add-on, these covers are usually made from durable acrylic and are available in a variety of different colors for easy vehicle customization. They can certainly keep your ride looking great and help protect your headlights, but headlight covers are not always legal in certain states.

Check Your State Laws

In most states, your car's headlights must be able to project its beams to 100 feet in front of your vehicle at low-beam settings and should reach 350 feet once it's on high-beam. But certain states like Texas and Arizona will say that the headlight beam must instead be visible to oncoming traffic by 1000 feet away. In other states, the color of light coming from the headlights is also regulated. Check with your local state laws to see if a particular cover's color is legal under their motor vehicle code before you purchase any.

What to Look for in a Headlight Cover

Once you've checked that your state would allow you to use headlight covers, then all you'll need to do is find the right one for your vehicle. Typical covers can go for less than $50 and are great for those who are on a tight budget. If you've got a little more extra cash, then you can go for higher end models that can range anywhere from $100 - $150. You'll want to get something that will match your vehicle's look and feel, but make sure that it's designed to be installed quickly and can be removed easily for cleaning and maintenance. Most covers come with adhesives that allow them to simply stick on top of the headlights, although you would want to get designs that come with screws, allowing them to attach securely to your vehicle.

Great Investment

Getting the right headlight cover for your car is a relatively simple task, and you simply can't go wrong unless you choose something that doesn't fit your ride. These products are quite inexpensive, so if you have a bigger budget, you may want to get removable models that would last longer since you can detach them for easier cleaning and maintenance. You shouldn't worry about the cost since these covers will pay for themselves in time since they'll be protecting your expensive headlights from damage, extending their service life in the process.

Protect Your Headlights by Installing Headlight Covers

Customizing your vehicle with stylish headlight covers is an easy and inexpensive way of adding style to your ride. Make sure that you've checked with your local laws about the use of headlight covers before you buy one for your vehicle. Installing these covers should only take about an hour of your time thanks to our guide.

Difficulty Level: Easy

Tools that you'll need

  • Heat gun
  • Plastic putty knife
  • Headlight covers

Removing Headlight Covers

Step 1: If your car has stock covers on it, then you'll need to remove it before you can install a replacement. Otherwise, you may skip this step and proceed to installing the cover right away.

Step 2: Using a heat gun, carefully remove the edges of your stock headlight cover, moving it frequently so you would avoid melting the plastic lens or the cover itself. Once it's lose, you should be able to peel it off with a plastic putty knife.

Step 3: For vehicles that have removable headlight covers that are mounted on using clips or small screws, then you'll have an easier time taking them off by simply loosening it from its mount.

Installing Headlight Covers

Step 1: Before you begin, make sure that you read the instructions that came with your aftermarket headlight covers, so you'll have an idea on how to install them beforehand.

Step 2: Clean the surface of your car's headlight using a microfiber cloth. A dust free surface will allow your cover to adhere better.

Step 3: Using the supplied adhesive, carefully attach the headlight covers to your vehicle. You should turn on your vehicle's headlights to see that the beams are aiming correctly. Otherwise, you should readjust the covers before the adhesive sets.

Step 4: Once you're satisfied with the position of the covers, allow the adhesive to fully cure and you're done.
