However, there is an easy way that you can clean it without having to completely disassemble the lights. This is what we will explain in this article.

How to clean the headlights of the car from the inside

1- Prepare the cleaning tool

The most important element is the use of two pieces of strong magnets so that one of the pieces can be inside the flashlights and the second outside, and they have the ability to attract.

Now you will prepare the cleaning tool, which is a flexible stick with a piece of cloth on one end and a magnet in it, and the way to make it is as follows:

1 - First, cut a square piece of cloth, so that it is the right size, and small. Dimensions 10 * 10 cm may be appropriate.

2 - Place one of the two magnets inside the cloth, so that the cloth is completely surrounded by the magnet.

3 - Use hot silicone by attaching a magnet to one end of the stick.

4 - Sew the piece of fabric in such a way that it surrounds the magnet on one end of the stick. Several layers of fabric can be applied to form a layer that protects the lights from being scratched by the magnets.

5 - The end result is a flexible stick with a piece of cloth attached to it with a magnet on one end.

2- Clean the headlights of the car

Now, the process of cleaning the lights and headlights begins, so do the following:

1 - Open the front hood, you will find the button to open the hood is located at the driver's seat.

2 - You need to unscrew the headlight bulb that is in the headlights of the car, turn the bulb counterclockwise and then pull it out.

3 - Next, insert the wand with the end of the cloth on it into the hole of the bulb that was removed. Keep inserting the stick until its tip touches the outer plastic cap.

4 - From the outside, put the second magnet in the place where the cloth is, the force of attraction between them will stick them.

5 - Move the magnet on the cover, in different directions, the wand will move from the inside automatically, so the cloth piece will clean any dirt or steam stuck inside.

6 - Keep stirring, until you have finished cleaning the entire plastic cover of the lights and headlights.
