Leaking Loyale Headlights

Recommended Posts

Water on the inside of the lense?

I found a great fix, that needs 24-48 hours to cure for life. And it lets out quite an odor until it is done. I was looking for rtv to do the job,and just knew it wasn't strong enough. They actually gain a heat pressure on the inside! I found some stuff called "plastic weld" at Advance auto. I am sure it is in many places.

You don't even have to remove the light lense to attempt this fix.

Mix it up in well ventilated area, and go across the top of the lights first..where metal meets the glass lense. The bottom with a small leak, normally doesn't allow water. The top does however. If it still leaks,after going across the top, a Q-tip with stuff mixed will get right in all around it. "A dab'll do ya".It will take 300 degrees and 3500 psi, recomended to bond on the package to metal and glass.I have used it in stressful places as an experiment (a hopeless door seem biding its last days on my car). It not only fixed it, I took some time to paint and keep the old door , as the problem stopped permanently.
