  • Headlight Sealant Database

    Lets get a list together of what headlight housings are sealed with! Submit a reply with the make and model of the car the housing belongs on and a link to the website where you got it from (or say OEM if taken off the car). PLEASE LIST THE YOUR MODEL YEAR.

    If it's aftermarket, list the company at a minimum and part number if you have it. Links won't always work.

    If you were able to get your housings apart , list instructions for doing so!

PUTTING YOUR LIGHTS IN THE OVEN OR USING A HEAT GUN CAN DAMAGE THEM AND CAUSE YOU OR OTHERS BODILY HARM UP TO AND INCLUDING DEATH. DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK*

      Sure thing! Let me look and see what I can come up with. I'm booked for the evening so it will probably be tomorrow until I can get it uploaded.

        Hello sir, what is it that you guys use to glue the headlights back together again? I saw this one a lexus ls600 headlight but there were not any part numbers or anything, or do you guys have any other suggestions, thanksHeadlight sealant.jpgHeadlight sealant on headlight.jpg

          That's it right there on the left. It's called "Butyl" - it's a persistently adhesive "glue" of sorts.

          You can get it at local auto stores - it's called 3M Window Weld

          The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

            Since I just opened my spare pair of tail's for my LED retro here ya go.

            98-01 Altima OE tail lamps. I've personally opened the 98-99 SE-L's (red brake and clear turn) and 00-01 (red brake and red turn) and it was the same process. I imagine the 98-99 red and amber's are the same as well. Aftermarkets could be butyl sealed but I do not know as I have never owned nor worked with them.

            200 for 5 minutes to loosen the butyl so you can remove the screw on the back
            200 for 10 minutes to work the lens loose
            200 for 5 for minutes to remove the lens entirely. Be careful with the housing lens as it is not flexible at all like the headlamp and will crack very easily. Ask me how I know.

            If you're removing the diffusers do so as soon as you pop the lens off since they're snapped in place and held there with butyl.

                Per _now_, all information in this thread and some more that I found on the intartubes, is in the linked Excel 2010+ spreadsheet.

                http://gfx.csj.no/hidplanet/HIDPlane...0Database.xlsx

                There are two tabs, one for cars and one for motorcycles.

                I'll keep updating it as new information becomes available.

                Enjoy!

                      How updated is this thread? Im looking at doing a set of challenger headlights, and some people mentioned slightly of butyl but I haven't seen it confirmed. Also curious if Audi ever changed their sealant.
