If you’re considering replacing the tail lights of your car, you might also want to consider having your used tail light assembly cleaned. The process can be done quickly, but it will make your tail lights look brand new again. It will also improve the visibility of your tail lights and reduce the likelihood that you’ll be pulled over by the police because of an issue with your lighting system. Here are some tips to help you clean the inside of your tail lights easily and effectively.


Why are tail lights so important?

Tail lights are an important safety feature on a vehicle. They provide both a warning and visibility for other vehicles on the road. It is important to keep them clean because dirt and grime can get caught in them making it more difficult for you or law enforcement officers to spot them. Cleaning your tail lights can also improve appearance, which will make your car look less dirty and worn. A used tail light assembly can be purchased through any auto supply store.


How do I determine if my car's tail lights need cleaning?

The best way to determine if your tail lights need cleaning is by turning on your headlights. If you notice that the light doesn’t shine through as brightly, it’s a good indication that there is dirt or grime buildup inside and it may be time for a thorough clean.

If you have a used tail light assembly and want to clean it, you can use soap, water and a small brush or toothbrush.


Can I simply use water or soap to clean my tail light?

So, you’ve cleaned the body of your car thoroughly. However, it will still appear dirty if your tail lights look foggy. You might think that this issue can be resolved through a quick clean. However, grime and dirt can settle on the inside of your tail lights, making it more challenging to clean. 

To avoid any buildup or future issues, start by using a dry cloth and some rubbing alcohol on both sides of the tail light lens and inside each bulb socket.


When should I bring my vehicle in for professional cleaning?

Cleaning your car is a time-consuming task, so it’s best to get this done as soon as you can. For example, at least once a year you should bring your vehicle in for professional cleaning. This will ensure that your car always looks its best. However, if you live in a city with heavy traffic or frequently go off-roading, then it may be necessary to have your vehicle cleaned more often than that.


Key points about cleaning your tail light lenses

The inside of your tail light lens can be difficult to clean, but with a few helpful tips, you’ll be able to maintain a sparkling appearance. First, start by wiping away any dust and debris. Next, spray on some glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol and let it sit for about 30 seconds before wiping it off. Finally, wipe away any remaining residue with a microfiber cloth or paper towel.


Tips for maintaining clear tail lights

1) When you’re driving, use your turn signal so that other drivers know where you are going. 

2) Clean the inside of your tail lights regularly by using a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner. 

3) Do not leave any items on top of your tail lights for long periods of time. This can cause dust and dirt to gather over time and make it more difficult for them to clean.
