The Lincoln Navigator is a full-size luxury SUV marketed and sold by the Lincoln brand of Ford Motor Company since the 1998 model year. Sold primarily in North America, the Navigator is the Lincoln counterpart of the Ford Expedition. While not the longest vehicle ever sold by the brand, it is the heaviest production Lincoln ever built. It is also the Lincoln with the greatest cargo capacity and the first non-limousine Lincoln to offer seating for more than six people. It is also notable for featuring an independent rear suspension, the only model sold by Lincoln to do so.

For its entire production run, Navigators have been produced in Georgetown, Kentucky. The first generation was assembled at Louisville Assembly in Louisville, Kentucky. For the 2015 model year, the assembly moved to Ford’s Avon Lake, Ohio plant to make room for future expansion of the Kentucky plant which will be assembling the current generation Taurus and MKS full-size cars (2016+). Its 5th generation went on sale during September 2018 as a 2019 model year vehicle.

Importance Of Car Bulbs

Headlights are obviously a necessary component of your car, and it’s important to keep them in top working condition for many reasons. Properly adjusted and cared-for headlights can literally make the difference between life and death. Headlights allow you to see road markings, signs, and unexpected obstacles. Over time, headlights inevitably get covered in grime, and the bulbs dim and burn out. Bright, clear headlights will give you the advantage of an extra second or two of response time to better react to an unexpected obstacle such as a pothole, deer, or debris in the road. Headlights also let other cars know you’re coming. Brighter headlights mean more visibility and a safer ride.

What are the most common causes of headlight failure?

The bulbs themselves (the actual light source inside the headlight housing) will typically last between one and two years; after that, they’ll start to lose brightness. But major failures more commonly result from misaligned beams coming out of the reflector cup or loss of electrical connection. Replacing a bulb is an inexpensive fix that takes under five minutes if you know what you’re doing. Replacing a reflector cup isn’t complicated either; it’s as simple as removing four screws, unplugging the current cup, and plugging in the new one.

What causes misaligned beams?

The critical factor with headlight alignment is protecting your eyes from glare and ensuring that you can see what’s ahead of you and to the side of you. If a beam isn’t properly aimed, it will either partially blind oncoming drivers or shine into their path and make it difficult for them to see what’s on the road. Maintaining proper aim is very important because poorly aimed headlights contribute to more than half of all nighttime accidents (according to statistics quoted by AAA). Misalignment is most often caused by damage such as potholes or accidents, but it can also be caused by general wear and tear or incorrect installation.

What’s the difference between a yellowed headlight lens and one that is clouded?

Yellowing is visibility degradation caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, which slowly degrades the plastic used in headlights and taillights. A cloudy appearance typically indicates an internal defect or moisture intrusion due to age or exposure to UV light. Cloudy lenses often prevent light from passing through them properly; replacing them with new ones will solve this problem. Some automakers now include indicators on the dashboard warning drivers when their headlights are beginning to lose function. This means it may not be necessary for you to make a determination about whether your headlights need to be replaced; if your car is giving you a warning, it’s time to replace them for your own safety.

How To Upgrade Your Headlights And Make Them Brighter

Most headlight upgrades are simple enough that you can do them at home without too much prior experience, but some are more complicated than others. Some headlight upgrades are also easier or harder depending on the vehicle you drive and the type of headlights that it came with from the factory.

Here are the five best upgrades and techniques to get brighter headlights:

1) Swap the Bulb Type

If you drive a vehicle that came with sealed-beam headlights, upgrading to halogen is generally the cheapest and most effective upgrade you can do. If your headlight housings are removable, it’s even possible to retrofit them with HID or LED bulbs.

Modern halogen light bulbs generally produce about 2,500 lumens per bulb for most car models. This means if your car uses two headlights (as most cars do), they’ll produce 5,000 lumens of light each. That’s still only half as much light compared to modern HID headlights which pump out around 8,000 lumens per unit! You might also hear people talking about “H4” style projector headlights. These are still sealed-beam headlights and can use the same bulb as you’ll find in a traditional headlight, but they give you much more control over the light beam produced by using two adjustable units per side.

HID (high-intensity discharge) lights come standard on many newer vehicles and produce very white/blue light which some people prefer over conventional halogen/H4 style projector headlights. They require much less power than conventional bulbs because they run at extremely high voltages. Consequently, if your car isn’t equipped with an HID kit from the factory it will likely be heavily dimmed because your engine just doesn’t have enough voltage to run those ballasts (though there is a workaround).

LEDs (light-emitting diodes) are the newest bulbs on the market. They’re generally pretty expensive, but you can find some cheap LED replacement bulbs for your headlights if they burn out. LEDs tend to last much longer than halogens or HIDs and produce a very white light that many people prefer over anything else.

2) Change Your Headlight Projectors

If your vehicle came with projector-style headlights, you have more options available to you because projectors give you better control of where the light cone is projected compared to reflectors which are found in most factory sealed-beam headlights.

Most models are compatible with various brand names of “H4” style adapters which allow you replace your stock headlight bulb with an aftermarket one without having to replace the whole unit. There are even adapters for some car models which allow you to upgrade your headlights from an H4 style bulb to an HID one with just a single adapter.

Reflectors are more difficult to upgrade because they generally have no adjustable components whatsoever, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. It just means you might have to leave your vehicle in one place while everyone else at the show drives around in theirs…

3) Get Your Beam Angles Right

The angles of your headlight beams play a huge factor in how they look on the ground, so you’ll need to get them adjusted before doing any other work, or else you won’t see much difference by upgrading yours at all! Some people will tell you that you can adjust your headlight beams by sticking washers behind the nut at the back of your headlights, but this is a very crude solution to what’s actually a fairly complicated problem.

4) Upgrade Your Headlights’ Anti-Fog Coating

If you’ve ever felt a surface that has been fogged up by steam it should be fairly obvious why headlights that aren’t treated with anti-fog coatings fog up easily when they get wet – water droplets scatter the light instead of letting it pass through and reflect back at you.

5) Clean and restore your headlight lenses: This is more difficult than just replacing headlight capsules, but you can still do it at home. When headlights look foggy or hazy, it’s usually because of buildup that you can remove. This makes your headlights look nicer, and can also increase their brightness. The easiest way to recondition a headlight lens is to buy a restoration kit.
