It’s important to have working headlights on your car – not only for your own safety, but also to avoid getting pulled over. If one of your headlights has burnt out, you’ll need to replace it as soon as possible. You might be wondering – can you do this yourself, or do you need to take it to a mechanic?
The good news is that changing a headlight bulb is usually a fairly easy task that most people can do themselves. Advance Auto Parts has everything you need to get the job done, including headlight bulbs, headlight covers and more.
To change a headlight bulb, first make sure your car is parked in a safe, well-lit area. Once you’ve located the burned-out bulb, you’ll need to remove it from the housing.
This is usually done by twisting or pulling it out. Next, insert the new bulb into the housing and twist or push it until it’s locked into place. Once the new bulb is in, turn on your headlights to make sure it’s working properly.
If you’re not comfortable changing your own headlight bulb, or if you can’t seem to get the new one to stay in place, your best bet is to take it to a mechanic or an auto shop. They’ll be able to change it quickly and get you back on the road in no time.
