I searched and did not find what I was looking for.

I went to wipe off the headlights tonight. They were pretty dirty from driving in the rain a few days ago. I sprayed them with windshield washer fluid and wiped them clean with a clean microfiber towel. Once clean I noticed two things:

1. Light scratches on the lenses.
2. A large static build up from wiping.

I've never noticed this issue on my '98 CV, however those lenses have hazed and have been buffed a few times already.

First off, did I miss something when it comes to cleaning these headlight lenses? Are they really that sensitive to scratching? I did not press hard when wiping clean.

Second, is there a way to avoid the static build up? I don't think there would be any actual issue other than it attracting light debris.

All info is appreciated.

When I read somewhere that the HID lens assemblies are like $1000 each :eek: from Ford, I put some cleardefender film on mine; got it off EvilBay.

I'd like to add some protection to mine but I was thinking someone posted not too long ago that the HIDs got too hot for the film?
