How to Change your Light Bulb without Breaking a Sweat

Did you notice that one of your headlights is busted while driving on your way home from work? Before you take your car out the next day, make sure you replace your light bulb first. Never drive in the dark without proper lighting.

Otherwise, you can get yourself and your passengers in trouble if you’re driving blindly on the road. You might even end up getting into a collision because you can’t see clearly where you’re going or an incoming car can run straight into you. Hence, it is important to fix this immediately to avoid encountering any of these accidents. 

If you enjoy tinkering with your car parts, you’ll find changing your light bulbs a fun task. Whether you’re replacing your fog light or your headlight, it is a simple task that doesn’t require a complicated process.

Technically, all you have to do is remove the plastic covering of the light bulb, remove the bulb and put in the new one. Use our KevianClean Quick Wax to make sure your headlights are clear and polished.

In case you don’t know where to start, we’ll teach you how.

  1. Locate the position of the bulb.
Open up the hood or trunk of your car and search for the light assembly from the inside. Identify the burned out light bulb.

    The light assembly may differ based on the design and model of your vehicle. Some cars have a plastic covering on the light assembly. In case your car has one, use a screwdriver to take out the plastic cover.

    Meanwhile, other cars have back plates which house the wiring system. The wires are held by clips. To remove it, gently undo the clips and position the wires to the side to expose the bulbs.

    1. Take out the old bulb.
    Slowly rotate the old bulb counter-clockwise. Once you remove it, put it in a safe and secure place.

      Don’t throw it away or break the glass because you will need it as a guide when you purchase a new set of bulbs. In case you break it, make sure you take note of the model and year of your car.

      1. Insert a new bulb.
      Put your new bulb in and rotate it clockwise then turn it tightly until it is secure in place. Then switch your lights on to test if your new bulb is working. Once your new light is working, reattach the back plate and the plastic cover of the lighting assembly.
