As headlight covers / evil eye is called a plastic cover that means Kleber is applied to the headlights. The aim is to make the view appear more compact and "grim". Headlight covers / evil eye may only be attached in such a way that you can see the light output of the headlight can not be hinder or change. Headlight covers / evil eye are also available made of metal to be welded to the hood. The same guidelines apply here too. In contrast to the headlight covers / evil eye made of plastic, which is often provided with an ABE, the evil eye made of metal, which was welded on, often has to use individual acceptance entered in the vehicle documents. But this is not always feasible. So it is better to inquire beforehand with a testing organization. The headlight covers / evil eye are also available for them rear headlights.
And how are headlight covers installed? Are there instructions or a tutorial for this?
Because every vehicle has a different headlight, and there are by no means suitable headlight covers for every type with approval there, general instructions for installing the headlight covers can be difficult to create.

Once the glue has hardened, the tape can be removed and the evil eye is done. And the process is basically identical for the so-called rear light covers. Here, too, glue is almost always used. Any existing ABE must always be carried in the vehicle. An entry is then not necessary. Will be the bezels only with one Gutachten delivered so is a change acceptance at yours Test organization required. Under no circumstances may the light exit angle be changed by the screens. If that is the case, there is an acceptance hopeless.

If this is not the case, then there is an individual acceptance can not be Pauschal is also possible. You should definitely get in touch with an appropriate testing organization in advance.
