If you are talking about the headlight housings, it is fine. I wax mine every time I wax the car. I have done the same with the taillights as well. No problems so far. Water beads and runs off faster fi they are waxed. Never thought about rain-x, that should work too.

Just make sure the wax is plastic safe. Most headlights have a UV coating on them and wax can damage that.

You shouldn't have any trouble with it.

So far, no explosions for me! I've always added a layer of carnauba wax to the headlights to aid in getting bugs, dirt and rain etc. off the headlights...

You should be fine :thumbsup:

It would be best for new headlights to make sure and use pure carnuba or one of the polymer waxes, you DON'T want to use cleaner wax on them as the fine grit that helps a neglected paint job will mess up the coating on the lens.

And then there's the exploding to watch out for :D

YOU got headlights in your Sonata ????

I got little square glass containers with candles in them....... tough to keep them lit while driving fast though... AT least they don't explode :whistling:
