Product on headlight lens

Postby chadz » Tue Nov 26, 2019 1:05 pm


I have just had my mk2 MOT'd and an advisory stated that my headlight lens (both) has a 'product' on them but not seriously reducing light output. My question is can the headlight units be stripped to gain access to the lens?
The outside polycarbonate cover polished up ok and got rid of a layer of oxidation. The MOT manual does not give a definition of 'product'. Any ideas?

It should only be the outside weathering that needs a good T-cut to make them clear again and thats it for MOT, if it is foggy on the inside then that says cheap bulbs have been used at some point, full light units are cheap enough to buy s/hand.

Thanks. Same bulbs for the 13 years I've owned the car. To me they look perfect especially now the outside has been polished and buffed. Nothing visible from the outside.
