I found a guy in Facebook a couple of years back that did home service. He brought a heat gun and re-sealed the headlights. Didn't last too long, though. Something about the plastic getting cloudy because of the heat of halogens, I guess.

Does anyone know if the 2016 Brio has compatible parts from other cars? I may need to replace the driver side axle on mine. I am hearing knocking sounds on full left lock when doing u-turns.

Did he spray the headlights with clearcoat afterwards? I read you're supposed to do that because the buffing process takes away a UV-protective layer that used to be on there.

kelangan talaga isprayan yan ng clear coat after buffing and polishing the plastic, uv-resistant if possible to protect the plastic.
