Both headlights are crazed on the surface where someone had fixed stick-on beam benders. Question is will this be an MoT failure?

Not unless it effects the beam pattern so probably OK.
Makes you cringe the amount of people that leave beam benders permantly in place, anything over a few weeks is risking it with plastic headlamps.

The crazing could adjust the beams aim , so it really depend's on that . To be honest i doubt anyone could give you a clear cut answer , it's really down to the examiners discretion . Myself , i would change them to be totally sure , but that's just me .

With the cost of new ones being exorbitant I certainly wouldn't change them unless they failed whi'ch Im pretty sure they won't.

  • Just read the instructions from the E Bay link. Looks quite clear how to do it.
  • Wash the water with the need to repair the headlamps, dry water stains, and then around the headlamps with tape wrapped around 2-3 laps.
  • Sandpaper with water soaked in the back of the sponge, the headlamps on the surface of the dirt part of the grinding off.
  • Squeeze the amount of blue powder on the headlamps, with sponge orange soft surface polished headlamps at least 2 minutes, know the headlamps shiny, and then talk sponge clean and clean.
  • Extend the black bag on the headlamps and wipe the headlamps with a soft sponge for at least 3 minutes. This step is used to protect against UV light.

I think the kits are Ok for polishing out cloudy/foggy headlamps, don't think they will remove the crazing.
