Clouded streak on Headlights

Post by Toyota_Fan » Tue Mar 13, 2018 4:03 pm

When you have the sun on the plastic of the front headlights there is a clouded streak all the way along the black area, touch it and it goes for a second then returns, think it cant be a fault just wonder what you guys think Image

Hi ans,
I would have thought condensation but it's not as there are no droplets of water or any signs that it is I think I'll go to the dealer for them to have a look and see wht the thoughts are of it, I dont think it's right and needs sorting before it gets any worse.

Yes I would, they may use a heat gun to remove any moisture and hopefully sort it.

I would take it back once again, if they assumed the 1st time, they should assume now,
Maybe should have been "corrected" but didnt, or they are from same batch or something.
