Hi to all RCZ lovers. Can you replace the plastic cover without replacing the entire light unit?

If you mean the lens I doubt it unless I'm wrong there all sealed Units to stop water ingress

Why, is it broken, or just obscured by age and plastic deterioration?
I recently came across a car for sale with one perfect headlight and one very yellowed!
Sadly I suspect the previous owner had failed the MOT, but the tester kindly let them do one this year and one next.
(This happened to me with an old C Max! Fortunately, I managed to clean both sufficiently to avoid immediate replacement - by buffing gently with a special pad attached to an electric drill, IIRC...)

Aren't you supposed to be able to clean these up with toothpaste or something according to the internet...?

My local body shop offers a refurb service for £60 guaranteed to look like new again. Mine aren’t bad, but might get them done in the future.

It's acetylene they use metal can video on YouTube looks like a tea pot with an element mask of the bumper then from an inch away heat up the solution and go over the cloudy parts will come back in time it's UV rays that discolours them so not a permanent fix I had a guy who sold the lenses for 50 a piece he's gone now it was on Ali express none left

Looks a good job, car looks good too...think garaging the car and minimal use slows down the process as mine are still ok. Have you changed your number plate from your Forum name as you've blanked one side of the registration plate?
