Cant see that deer in your headlights?! One or both of your headlight bulbs may be burned out. Headlight or headlamp bulbs are easy to replace, as you are usually only required to remove a few clips to access the bulb. We are going to show you some tips and tricks when replacing your headlight bulbs.
There are three bulb types in each headlamp, a low and high beam and the daytime running light. When purchasing headlights, it is imperative that you look into your owner’s manual for the bulb type, and it will show you what you need to know. You can find that information at the back of the manual, where the specifications are. Also remember when purchasing a new bulb, go for a box that is not damaged. You don't want to get a box that has a bent corner because that could mean that someone dropped it. It may seem simple but it will help you pick out headlights that aren't going to blow out quickly. Remember the brighter the headlight, the shorter the bulb will last. Another tip is always replace your headlights in pairs, so when purchasing new bulbs, look for a pack with two.
Do not remove the burned out bulbs unless you can immediately replace it with a new one. If a bulb is removed for an extended period of time, contaminants may enter the headlamp and affect its performance.
Be sure that you have the proper replacement headlamp bulb ready before you discard the burned out bulb! And you are done!
