Product Description

Product Description

The Sylvania headlight restoration kit uses exclusive technology to restore hazy and sun damaged headlight lenses. This easy-to-use kit provides clarity and durable, long lasting protection in less than 30 minutes. Your headlight lens is an engineered system and needs to be properly restored for best performance.


Hazy, yellowed headlights are an inevitable consequence of weather and wear on plastic headlight lenses that is both unsightly and dangerous, as light output lessens and glare is increased. Restore original clarity and vision to plastic headlight lenses in minutes with the Headlight Restoration Kit from Sylvania. The Sylvania Restoration Kit is easy to use in three simple steps, requires no tools and is the only headlight restoration kit currently available that comes with a finishing UV-resistant clear coat application, designed to preserve lens clarity.

Plastic Headlights Degrade Over Time

New plastic headlight lenses have a factory applied UV coating to protect the plastic from degradation. Over time, harsh UV rays and road debris penetrate the factory UV coating resulting in hazing and yellowing. This hazing is not only unsightly, it is a serious safety concern, in fact hazed lenses reduce downroad illumination by 66% and increases oncoming driver glare by scattering light upward.

Permanent Restoration from the Lighting Experts at Sylvania

Unlike other lens restoration products designed just to remove the haze and yellowing, the Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit restores the lens to like-new clarity and protection using our proprietary UV Block Clear Coat. This easy-to-apply durable coating has engineered polymers as well as active and passive UV blockers to protect the plastic from future deterioration. No other product offers this level of protection.

Amazing Results…Saving Hundreds of $$ in Replacement Costs

With a 30 minute restoration, downroad illumination is improved by 3 times and glare, caused by refraction of head lamp light through clouded and scratched lenses, is reduced by 70%. In addition, by using the Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit lenses are restored to a like new appearance at a fraction of the cost of an all-new lens replacement job, which can cost over $300 a pair.

Easy and Simple to Use

The Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit includes everything you need to restore 2 plastic headlight lenses. And with its tool-free design virtually anyone can regain crystal clear, like-new headlights in as little as 30 minutes via three simple steps. It isn’t like so many other kits on the market, that require drills and attachments and power cords. All you need to provide is water and maybe a few extra paper towels.

Simple, Tool-Free Restoration in Three Easy Steps

The Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit steps
Three simple, tool-free steps to new-looking headlights
Step 1: Preparation

Wash lenses, mask painted surface (tape included in kit). Next, spray on the Surface Activator--a proprietary surface corrosion softener only from Sylvania. Immediately, you’ll see the yellow gunk start to break down.

Step 2: Sand/Polish

Remove corrosion with a wet-sanding process using the provided 3 grades of premium waterproof sanding papers (400, 1000, 2000 grit). You’ll notice the lens to take on a cloudy, smooth finish. Apply the oil-free Clarifying Compound. Already, this step will help you feel confident in the kit’s ability. You’ll be amazed at how clear the lenses will be.

Step 3: Clarify/Seal

You’ll then apply the UV Block Clear Coat. It’s simple. Just apply as instructed in smooth, even applications. This UV Block Clear coat is a specially formulated polymer coating with active and passive UV blockers. This is the component that gives you long-lasting results.

    I bought the Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit after reading a positive review in Consumer Reports. I am amazed how clear the headlights on my 10 year old Honda look after using it. A co-worker said they looked nearly brand new!

    They better look almost brand new after all the elbow grease it took to use the kit! Your arms are going to be sore from all the sanding you'll be doing BY HAND.

    Here are a couple of hints I wish I'd gotten before trying this:

    1. Don't wash your car BEFORE using the kit. The sanding will create quite a mess on your front bumper.
    2. Have about 1-2 hours available to complete the process. One review says it only took them 35 minutes to complete both headlights. I don't see how this is possible! The instructions recommend taking your time on the first sand, then 15 more minutes of sanding and polishing PER LENS! You'll also spend some time wiping the drying the lens. It took me almost 2 hours to complete, though I'm sure I could shave a little time off the process if I did it again.
    3. Make sure you have a chair/stool to sit on. I made the mistake of doing this while sitting on the garage floor. After about 10 minutes of sanding, you're going to wish you had a chair to sit on.
    4. Have plenty of water available. The wet process sanding and rinsing will use quite a bit of water. I used 1 larger spray bottle per lens.
    5. Towels too! You'll be asked to dry the lens a few times. While a few paper towels are included in the kit, you'll need more than that. If nothing else, you'll be able to wipe off some of the white residue you'll create in the sanding process.
    6. Cut the sand paper in half. I wish I'd done this. I found myself getting confused on which side I'd used while sanding the second lens.

    I live in the desert southwest and after only 4 years of our torturous grueling sun, my Maxima's headlights were looking bad. They were badly fogged and turning yellow which made my car look like it was 10 years old and, nevertheless, driving me crazy! No less, the light output from my headlights had equally diminished.

    I purchased the Sylvania 38771 Headlight Restoration Kit in hopes of bringing some kind of life back to my dull, lack-less headlights. I read the instructions carefully and even watched their online video that the instructions referred to. The whole process was easy and took me under 35 minutes for both headlights. I was absolutely amazed by the end results! This kit made my headlights look brand spanking new and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a resolution to their dull looking headlights. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

    My detailer had been working to keep my lights from yellowing for several years and the yellow always returned. My dealer said they could restore them for $250 but they would not guarantee the results. I didn't think that was a good option. So that's when I tried this. I presume it's similar kit to what the dealer would use, but with hand sanding rather than an electric sander that they would likely use. It took about 45 minutes of elbow grease to apply. I recommend watching the video they've posted on youtube to get the process right, there's several steps. I would say the process removed about 95 percent of the haze and yellowing when completed. Three months later, I think they have slightly dulled again, but only slightly. To my mind, if the lights keep most of their luster for a year it will have been worth it. If they start to rapidly fade again, I'll be back to update this review.

    9 Month update - products like this must be judged by whether the results endure. 9 months after this treatment, about 50 percent of the dull and yellow film is back and the results are no longer acceptable. The product isn't a failure, but it's not a success either. Downgraded from four to two stars. I now use Meguiar's Plast-X. It's takes just a few minutes to apply, and lasts a couple months before you need to reapply.

    "There are so many Headlight Restoration Kits out there, which to choose??"

    THIS ONE! Why? Well, the reason I chose it is because it was the Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice Award Winner in 2010. And for good reason!

    I have a 10-year-old Lexus. The headlights were SO yellow, dull and hazy that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't even SEE the headlight bulbs inside. Besides the fact that they made the rest of the otherwise good-looking car look horrible, it's surprising how minimal the light output had become at night--and these are HID headlights.

    First step was to call the dealership and find out how much it would cost to replace the lens housings. Over $600 just for the parts. Bzzzzz! Wrong answer!

    Next step was to check out my other options. Enter the Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit, for $20-$25. Bingo!

    Just before you actually perform the work on the headlights, MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THE VIDEO on the Sylvania website: [...]

    The key is in the sanding. I spent 2 1/2 hours on the entire project, but it's because I was told that the more one sands, (especially with the 1,000, 2,000, and rubbing compound), the better the results. So sand I did. (If you read any of the other reviews where people didn't quite get the results they had hoped for, that will probably be why. Most of them said they did the whole job in less than 45 minutes, which means they didn't sand much.)

    The last step is what turns the headlights crystal clear. My headlights literally look brand-spankin' new! I have rarely been so surprised, and so pleased with a product. It actually DOES what it claims. It's not marketing hype, like so many other products out there.

    So if you have dull, faded, yellow headlights or fog lights, the Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit is the answer. Kudos to Sylvania for making such a great product.
