Audi A3 LampGard
LampGard from WeatherTech is designed to protect your Audi A3’s headlamps, turn indicators, parking lights and (depending on the year, make and model of your vehicle) fog lights. LampGard is made of a high-performance polyurethane film that is virtually invisible and applies directly to the lamp surface. Its built-in ultraviolet inhibitors prevent the material from discoloring, and its self-healing technology delivers unsurpassed scratch resistance. LampGard is available for most vehicle makes and models and is designed to precisely fit your specific Audi A3. Protect your lights from scratching, pitting and staining with the WeatherTech LampGard.
WeatherTech recommends professional installation, but LampGard comes with easy-to-follow instructions and applies to headlamps, fog lamps, turn indicators and parking lights (when applicable) to protect them from scratching and pitting. LampGard is available for many vehicle makes and models.
Is this product Car Wash safe?Yes. When properly installed, you can safely enter a car wash.
Does the LampGard kit include the Fog Lamps?
Depending on the year, make, and model of your vehicle, some kits may include the Fog Lamps. A fit note will be listed on our website if the model does not include the Fog Lamps.
How does LampGard curve over the headlamp? Mine won’t stretch all the way.It may seem as though there is excess material around the edges. This is completely normal and is no cause for concern. Keep the material warm and continue making short squeegee strokes from the center outward, gradually working toward the edge of the lens. When working toward the edge, spread the excess material out rather than working it all into one spot. Once the excess is properly spread about the perimeter of the LampGard, the material will easily lay flat on the lens. We recommend that you seek professional assistance if you are continuing to have installation issues.
Will the bubbles go away?Use the supplied squeegee to force the excess alcohol solution and air bubbles out to the edges of the LampGard. Over time, remaining air bubbles will disappear.
I have installed the LampGard kit on my headlights and they looked fine, but now they look foggy. Did I do something wrong?When using the wet application technique, this is normal. The fog is the result of the alcohol/water solution evaporating from beneath the plastic. The water vapor that is produced results in a hazy appearance for several days. The haze will clear as the vapor dissipates.
Is it best to apply the LampGard kit to the lenses wet or dry?In most cases, we have found that the wet installation yields the best-looking installation. On larger headlamp pieces, the wet installation method is recommended as bubbles and improper alignment of the material are far less likely. On smaller pieces, such as fog lamps, the dry installation method is sometimes easier. This is especially the case if the lamp is spherical in shape.
The lights on my car are heavily contoured. Is your kit hard to install on this type of light or should I have them professionally installed?Our LampGard material is extremely pliable and can easily be contoured over dome shaped surfaces. Professional installation should not be necessary provided that you follow the instructions closely.
I have the LampGard kit almost completely applied using the wet application method, but I can't seem to get the edges to completely stick down. What am I doing wrong?It is absolutely imperative that a hair dryer or heat gun is used in this area to seal the edges. The heat serves two purposes. First, applying heat helps evaporate the remaining alcohol/water solution from under the edges. Second, applying heat makes the plastic more pliable so that it can contour to the edge of the light. It is important to use caution when using a heat gun to warm the plastic. Only a small amount of heat is required. If you apply too much heat, you can damage the surface of the plastic.
What if I want to remove the LampGard kit at a later date?The removal process is simply a matter of warming the plastic, and peeling the LampGard away from the surface of the headlamp. It may require significant pressure to pull the plastic away from the headlamp, but they normally the LampGards peel off without any residue left on the lens. If any adhesive remains on the surface of the headlamp, it can be removed by rubbing the excess adhesive with your thumb.
