Headlight Restoration – Check

Headlights looking dull? Struggling to see properly at night? Let us restore your dull, yellowed headlights to like-new condition!

Faded headlights (yellowing headlights) caused by the oxidisation of the surface of the outer cover, can cause a serious degradation in the effectiveness of the light itself.

Driving at night or in bad weather conditions with ineffective headlights could pose a safety concern. If your headlights are looking a bit worse for wear, come into Beaurepaires and our friendly team will remove the oxidised material to a smooth and polished finish with our Headlight Restoration Service.

The results will restore dull, yellowed headlights to like-new clarity and improve lens appearance and visibility for safer driving.

Your headlights will look good as new by the time you leave.

Price includes restoration of both headlights on passenger car and SUV/4WD vehicles.

Here are our top signs you might need to replace your windscreen wipers.

STREAKY WINDSCREEN

If you have streaks on your windscreen, or dust and dirt that just won’t come off, you definitely need to replace your blades. The rubber on your windscreen wipers should grip the window creating a nice smooth, easy wipe to remove any water or dirt.

A quick trick: try using a cloth or paper towel to wipe your blades – this may fix the problem, but if it keeps happening,then we recommend replacement.

NOISE

You know that terrible noise your wipers make when they drag across the glass? Well that screeching noise means they need to go. Not only is it not nice to listen to, but it usually means the wipers aren’t cleaning your windshield the way they should because they’re only in contact with the glass some of the time.

SKIPPING & RUBBER PROBLEMS

Did you know that you should be able to turn your windscreen wipers on even when it’s not raining and they should just slide across the glass? If they skip or grab on the windscreen it’s likely the rubber may have deteriorated. Take a close look at your windshield wipers. Is the rubber all one smooth piece or is it cracked, split, or broken off in places? If the rubber is in poor condition it will most likely be doing an equally poor job and  can cause vision problems while you’re on the road.

BAD WINDSHIELD CONTACT

When it’s raining hard, it’s really obvious when your wipers stop reaching certain parts of your windshield. If the blades aren’t coming into contact with the corners or some spot in the middle anymore, you need new ones. They’ve pulled up from the windshield because of old rubber or because of a bent frame, and they aren’t doing their jobs anymore.

COLDER WEATHER

If you live in cold climates you might want to think about getting new ‘winter’ blades as the cold weather approaches. The ice and snow in winter will damage regular wiper blades much faster than those manufactured to withstand cold temperatures and frozen windshields.

Wiper blades should be replaced every six months to a year or as soon as you notice a difference in driving visibility.

When wiper blades no longer make proper contact with the windshield surface, they can begin to squeak, chatter, skip, smear or streak reducing driving visibility.

Yes, we recommend you replace both blades at the same time.  The chances are both blades are the same age and condition – nothing worse than one working well and the other one not. Plus don’t forget the rear wiper blades on 4WDs, minivans, SUVs and hatchbacks.

Wiper Blades are now available at all Beaurepaires Stores (excluding Beaurepaires Alexandra and Ashburton).
