    —–try at your own risk , but dap brake fluid on your finger tips and rub to lights. dont use cloth.(cloth leaves streaks) rinse with water. does work and fast. brake fluid eats paint and plastic. but a little film rubbed on will remove grime,no joke

  • ilikedabigbooty says:

    yellow lights are like car cataracts

  • whoohaaXL says:

    Follow up note). Steps 4-6 are for plastic lights only, I forgot to mention that.

  • whoohaaXL says:

    Without a doubt the best way that I’ve found to do this is;
    1. Wetsand with 2000 grit sandpaper
    2. Buff with rubbing compound by hand or rotary machine.
    3. Wash and dry well and then use wax and grease remover.
    (note). At this point you can stop if you like the results/repeat/or continue on if desired.
    4. Apply 3 light coats of clear coat (Canned if you rather than use a gun) Let dry.
    5. Wet sand again with 2000 grit paper.
    6. Use Rubbing compound again by hand or machine.

    Admire your results

    Marty – “What’s wrong?” Moog – “Dude, you through piss in my face!”

  • xxph4nt0mxx says:

    Dont buy a kit for like 20 when you can get meguiars plastx and 2k grit sand paper for under 10.

  • Bigtkyjp says:

    toothpaste and window cleaner

  • Thunderchin says:

    Is it common Down Under for people to go throwing piss at each other? I thought the Sniper from Team Fortress 2 with his Jarate was weird and stuff, now this happens.

  • eimantuks6 says:

    it also looks like the car got a tiny bit smaller

  • Shmust says:

    You guys used too much water with the baking soda. The baking soda is gritty and removes fine dirt and helps the scratches. I find it looks really good if you leave the toothpaste on the light too, when you wash it off you see all the scratches again. If you want a restore get a hand sand restoration kit and make sure it comes with a SEALER for the end, or else you’ll jsut be doing it again within a few years

  • Dplasher68 says:

    In conclusion fine sand paper then advocado then wax pretty much it

  • Matt Smith says:

    the best way to fix your head lights it to sand them with 600 then 800 grit sand paper till the yellow is gone then use an automotive clear coat and spray the lights.

  • Dylan Rodriquez says:

    Great video, showed me everything I need to know. Thanks!

  • 1aauto says:

    It will matter if it’s a 4 door or a 2 door. We have them listed with pictures on our website 888-844-3393 We also offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders.

  • thangxixon says:

    question? Does the side mirror for 2000 Accord Coupe differ from Sedan same year? Thanks

  • 1aauto says:

    We currently do not have a video that shows you how to remove this particular mirror. You may be able to apply some of the basics in this video to you car. Usually to service the mirror you either have to take the door panel off and them the trim piece covering the mirror bolts, or on some vehicles you can get away with just removing the trim piece over the mirror. Hope this helps you out. 888-844-3393

  • Jangsaverem says:

    I notice you have a video for replacing a Honda Civic Mirror 01+ but I am stuck with a Honda Civic 99 Manual Mirror and was wondering what you would suggest. Your videos are super helpful but as I have a Manual and its a Civic I feel kind of lost.

  • BrandonKTG says:

    Thanks, this helped out a lot!

  • EvanBurnetteMusic says:

    Really appreciate you! Keep up the good work.

  • agooden1676 says:

    Thank you the visual of replacing parts. After reading the a couple of guided walk through steps and then having a visual to observe is what makes have the desire to continue to DIY and teach my family members or at least give them your simple but effective video web site to refer to too. This why I have chosen and will continue to choose to use your products over your competitors… Thank you again…

  • Luis Rivera says:

    good video

  • 1aauto says:

    It should be the same, if not very similar.

  • Bobby Spicer says:

    Will this be about the same installing the mirrors on a 2002 Honda Accord ex 2 door also the car is black as well so I’m guessing it will easily match not sure if they are powered mirrors or not though yet thanks for any advice you can give me!! I’m going to be doing this on my brothers car and I have used you guys before for my Dodge Durango.

  • davio47 says:

    Great video. I am going to replace mine soon. Thanks.

  • cortem762 says:

    I have a 2008 Honda CRV and it has basically the same panels as this, but I can’t even pull off the little plastic triangle panel. It absolutely will not budge.

  • 1aauto says:

    We currently only sell the complete mirror assembly for this application.

  • Ashley Webster says:

    The housing on my 1999 Honda Accord LX mirror is fine. Can I just buy the mirror with backing? If so, where?

  • 1aauto says:

    They may be different in the way that they attach.

  • joelu913 says:

    Great videos 1AAuto. Do you know if a 99 mirror will fit a 98 coupe? I ask because I want the mirrors to be able to fold. Thanks.

  • madeNda1980s says:

    thanks for this video, its just unfortunate that i saw this too late when i already paid some rip off $250 to replace mines

  • 1aauto says:

    You should be able to. Any power connections wouldn’t have a spot to plug into though. You would need to leave them disconnected.

  • salahmad83 says:

    Can a power side view mirror on a 1998 accord coupe be replaced with a manual mirror?

  • magdyh007 says:

    this was an amazing video..first time doing it and it only took me and my husband 45 min…and you saved us $55 install fee from any auto store!! thanks..will recommend to anyone that needs auto help!!!

  • 1aauto says:

    We do not carry just the motor for these mirrors. We do however carry the complete mirror for a 98-02 Honda Accord on our website

  • magdyh007 says:

    can i buy just the motor for the side view mirror?

  • 1aauto says:

    The mirror design would be different, but the basic steps taken to get at the bolts should be pretty close.
