The ever popular Honda CR-V. This one loved by it’s owner, warned the headlights might fail their next MOT.They had considered trying to replenish the headlights themselves but couldn’t find the time so called me in to do my thing!They were very happy with the outcome and I am pleased to say the car has passed two MOT test since my work…many more to come!
This vehicle was an MOT headlight failure for the last 3 years!The owner of this trusty Honda Accord has been taking it to the same local garage for its MOT for the last few years since purchasing it. Every year it has failed for poor headlight beam and projection, causing extra cost and inconvenience to him every time!Having failed the MOT the garage would then ensure it passed when re-tested by simply rubbing compound onto the headlights until they were deemed clear enough. To be honest this is common and acceptable practise “in the trade” and even for those looking to simply try and improve the general look and performance of their headlights, as was demonstrated by this Honda needing attention year after year! The owner did mention the fact that the headlights had become progressively worse when driving at night over the years so was delighted to find out about my service for several reasons, not least that he was now finally contemplating buying some brand new headlights after years of just putting up with the situation…I am super pleased to report he was even more delighted with the result of the restoration!
The owner of this particular CR-V bought the car nearly new 13 years ago. Like most CR-V owners they love the car. Around a year ago they restored the headlights themselves with a very good off the shelf DIY kit. Happy with the result of their work at the time, it didn’t take long before the headlights started to degrade again.I am pleased to say they were over the moon with the results. Once again their night time visibility has been brought back to the max!
