Headlights are not just a feature of your vehicle – they are vital for safety when driving at night or in low-visibility conditions. Ensuring your headlights are in top condition is crucial, not just for your own safety, but also to pass the Warrant of Fitness (WOF) inspection in New Zealand. If your car has failed a WOF due to headlight problems, fear not, as Grimmer Motors, with their extensive expertise in vehicle repairs, presents four effective solutions to get your headlights shining bright and legal once more.

1. Headlight Restoration Service

Clear Up Cloudy Lenses for Better Visibility

One of the most common reasons headlights fail a WOF is because the lenses have become cloudy or yellowed over time. UV radiation, road debris, and chemicals can degrade the protective layer on the headlights, leading to reduced visibility. Grimmer Motors offers a comprehensive headlight restoration service that includes sanding down the lenses, polishing them to a high shine, and applying a fresh protective coating. The result is significantly improved light output and a car that looks well-maintained. Learn more about headlight restoration.
