I just finished waxing my CT with a liquid car wax and was surprised to see that the wax had run behind the front headlight lenses. The wax leaked in on the top outside corners. I now have lenses with cream color corners with no way to remove the wax. I am pissed. First it was the driver's inside door handle that pulled off and now this. Back to the dealer and more time wasted. I have hand waxed many cars in the past and have never had this problem. Future car waxers be warned.

I'm guessing that there is wax behind the headlight housing (between the metal fender and the clear plastic housing); you didn't actually get wax into the housing. Else, water would have already made its way into your headlights if there was that much of an opening. No pictures?

Try the synthetic paste waxes. They are easy to apply and outlast the traditional paste waxes. I'll never go back after seeing the results.

Meguiars Ultimate Quick Wax

Just for the heck of it Try Meguiars Ultimate Quick Wax - It is very good good and absolutely the easiest to apply. You spray on and wipe off -20 minutes for the whole car.

Before you put it down, at least give it a try ;) And it doesn't drip wax in places you don't want it too! :D

Here is a link:
Amazon.com: Meguiar's G17516 Ultimate Quik Wax: Automotive

cost is $8.00 per bottle.

I love Klasse AIO and HGSG combi. If you have a dark color car then try using P21s wax.

They all little more expensive.

If you have a money to burn, try swissvex. Which is $1500 per jar. :)

Agreed, P21S 100 % Carnuba Wax. Easy on & off, waxed my car three times by hand, leaves nice shine.

Yikes, sorry to hear that. I too usually stick to paste waxes lately, they last longer and do a better job IMO.
