    Is this a common thing? I've got limescale type of stuff on my headlights. Ive used a Maguires kit to attempt to remove it. Ive done it a couple of times now and it has vastly improved the headlight lenses but not 100 per cent. Has anyone got any other ideas please? many thanks

    I would have thought it's more likely to be UV damage to the polymer than lime scale... unless you're using some really hard water in the washers.

    f it is UV damage the solution is to gently polish it out using successively finer compound. Once it's clear again, you need to re-seal the surface or it will just happen again (because you've just removed any UV protection that might have still been there).
