Finding & Replacing Your Car’s Headlight

headlight2How to Find Your Headlamp Bulb

First, locate the bulb you need to swap. The quickest way to accomplish this is to have someone flip your lights on and off while you watch from the front of the car. Use your vehicle’s owner manual to determine if it is your high beams, low beams, or a bulb with both.

After this, write down the make, model, year, and engine type of your vehicle. Take this information to an auto parts store or website to learn the type of headlamp bulb you need. This is done through a numeric or alphanumeric identifier, which can also be found in your owner manual.

From there, you have to select from available brands and the levels of longevity and brightness that are offered. Bulbs that last longer won’t burn as bright and brighter bulbs will burn out sooner. Finding a bulb in a middle group between both brightness and longevity is a great choice.
