How to Reseal Headlights



How do I reseal my headlights after baking open?

  • Begin applying oem grade butyl sealant into the channel of you headlamp. Apply enough to fill the bottom radius of the headlight channel. 
  • After sealant is placed into the groove, press together slightly and  re-bake the headlights at 240 degrees for 12-20 min. Make sure your oven is fully finished pre-heating before placing headlights inside. 
  • Using oven mitts, remove the heated assembly and  press the lens together further. For best results use clamps at several points around the headlight.
  • Allow the headlight too cool for 30 minutes then remove the clamps. 
  • Once cool, remove the excess butyl glue by pulling quickly away from the lamp.
