Shedding Light On Headlight Maintenance

When the storms come or the sun sets, your headlights are your key to getting home safely. Since you depend entirely upon them for visibility of what lies ahead, a headlight malfunction will bring all of your travel plans to a grinding halt. Even if your headlights work “decently,” there are a few things that you can do to ensure the light ahead is bright and clear. To keep you safe on your journeys ahead, we would like to offer these headlight maintenance tips.

  • Brightness: Your bulbs dim over time, so it is important to check them periodically and ensure they still have the brightness they need. To do this, park five feet away from a wall. If the lights from your headlight come in clear, bright white circles, your headlights are bright enough. If not, it is time to swap them.
  • Alignment: While you have your car parked that way, check that your headlights are both pointing at the same height on the way. Hitting a pothole can throw your headlights out of alignment, which can make it difficult for drivers to see you and/or the road when passing. If your headlights are misaligned, you should take your car to a mechanic to get them lined back up.
  • Lenses: If you have ever worn a pair of scratched or foggy sunglasses, you know that lens clarity is crucial. Check that your headlight lenses have not become cloudy or yellowed. If they have, you can repair them with a headlight restoration kit.
