Introduction: Quick Fix of Hazy Headlights

See short 2:23 video and steps below.

Step 1: Hazy Headlights - Wash First

Step 2: Materials: Meguiar's Cleaner Wax (Walmart), 2000 Grit Sandpaper, Microfiber Cloth, Water Bowl

Step 3: Tear Off a Piece of the 2000 Grit Sandpaper

Step 4: Wet Sand the Headlight to Remove Oxidation

Step 5: Wipe Off the Sandpaper Grit

Repeat wet sand and wipe off the sandpaper grit until all heavier oxidation is removed, leaving only a light haze just from the 2000 grit sandpaper.

Step 6: Apply Meguiar's to Headlight and Rub Out Any Haze

Step 7: Let Meguiar's Dry Then Wipe Off...Congratulations, You Did It!

Repeat Meguiar's application, rub, dry and wipe off till headlights are clear to your liking. Once your headlights are in good condition, keep them that way by at least annually, wash, apply Meguiar's, rub off any haze, let Meguiar's dry and wipe off. Meguiar's is good on the car's paint as well. Other liquid combo polish and wax brands work too, such as Toyota Sealant Cleaner and Mothers Cleaner Wax.

I used 600 grid under water, then 1000, 1500 and 2500 all under water. Next polish (Octavia - Lidl W5, Fabia - some profi stuff from friend's shop), both applied with polish machine (thankfully I have access to machine) and finally hard wax - K2).
