It’s important to be in tune with your headlight bulb replacement options and how the type of shop will affect the pricing they offer to you. Dealerships will always be the most expensive option for headlight bulb replacements. Traditional brick and mortar repair shops will typically provide more affordable automotive service prices than the dealership. However, mobile mechanic services, like NuBrakes, usually provide the best prices because they have significantly less operational overhead… And not to mention, a much more convenient experience… A true win-win.
Still have questions about headlight bulb replacements? We're here to help.
Headlights are a very important and useful feature of a vehicle. Without them, it would be difficult to drive at night and in bad weather conditions. Their task is to provide enough light to allow drivers to drive safely.
Things to keep in mind if you need a headlight bulb replacement. If you notice that the light is fading, dim, and/or flickering, it’s time for you to replace them. Generally, you should replace both of your bulbs at the same time. If one fades out first the other will definitely fade out soon.
For your safety, it isn’t advisable to drive your car with your headlight burnt out. It’ll lessen your visibility while driving and may result in an accident. Also, you might get a fine as most states require drivers to have their headlights on during sunrise or sunset.
To ensure your safety and the safety of others on the road, your vehicle’s headlight bulb should be replaced once it has completely failed. Imagine driving without any lights on. It would be difficult and very dangerous.
Depending on what type of light your vehicle has, the lifespan of each may vary. A typical headlight bulb can last for 500 to 1,000 hours and some can last for 30,000 hours. Other factors that may also affect their performance are your driving habits, factory defects, and wiring problems.
Here are some different types of headlight bulbs and how long they usually last:
Halogen - 500~1,000 hours
HID - 2,000 hours
Xenon - 10,000 hours
LED - 30,000 hours
You can refer to your vehicle’s manual for properly replacing your headlight bulbs. Below are general steps that you can follow:
1. Make sure that your car’s power is off.
2. Check and look for the headlight holder under your car’s hood.
3. Disconnect the power wires by pushing down the clips.
4. Remove the old headlight bulb carefully and make sure to check how it’s hooked up as you need it when placing the new bulb.
5. Install the new headlight bulb.
6. Check if they are working properly.
