Lotus Esprit Tail light lens replacement
Can I replace my Lotus Esprit tail light lens?
Every Lotus Esprit has lights on the rear that tell motorists behind them when the car will be slowing or stopping, turning, or reversing. The tail lights, brake lights, turn signal indicators, and often the reverse lights are contained in the tail light lens.
From normal operation, the tail light lens can become cloudy due to the environment around the Lotus Esprit or, more often than not, the taillight lens is accidentally broken and requires replacement.
The lens both protects the bulb from moisture and breakage. As well, the tail light lens ensures the emanating light is the correct colour for the light’s purpose.
Many cars have one tail light lens on each side while others have tail light lenses that split up the purposes among two or three lenses per side. A tail light lens is most often formed by polycarbonate plastic and sealed watertight to the tail light housing.
The hard plastic is easily broken with impact, and UV light and heat can cause the plastic to become cloudy or discoloured, and you require tail light lens replacement.
Some tail light lenses contain LED bulbs or circuit boards, which is why the cost of replacement seems exorbitant.
When you notice a hazy or cloudy appearance and dull light from tail lights, cracked or broken plastic or moisture inside the Lotus Esprit tail light lens then it's time to get them replaced.
Having your tail light lens replaced when it’s broken or discoloured gives you the reassurance that other motorists can see where you intend to move your Lotus Esprit.
If your tail light lens is broken or the lights are difficult to see, other drivers might not see your turning or stopping signals. That puts you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road at risk of a collision. it’s good to have AutoGuru on your team.
