The basic rule of choosing headlight bulbs includes knowing the three basic types of bulbs and understanding which one is best suited for your particular vehicle. Note that every car comes with its own kind of headlamp. There are three basic types: Xenon/HID, halogen, and LED. The vast majority of vehicles arrive in the showroom with halogen lights, while many high-end, newer cars have LED lights. Xenon/HID bulbs are mainly used for fog lamps. Below you will find detailed information on how to replace your old headlight bulbs with the new ones.

Figuring Out The Right Headlight Bulbs For Your Vehicle

The first thing you need to know is that what kind of lights your car uses, so this applies to both Xenon/HID and LED lights. If it’s halogen, you definitely should consider changing them as soon as possible since they are known to fail often. To check which type of headlights you have installed in your car, look under the front hood of the vehicle for a sticker stating whether it’s HID or halogen. Halogen lights are cheaper but they burn out faster than HID or LED.

HID headlights are a lot more expensive than halogen ones, but they last a whole lot longer. A good way to determine which of the three headlight bulb types your vehicle uses is by checking where you can find the manufacturer’s documentation. If that doesn’t help, try looking at the headlights themselves. Halogen lights usually have a thin metal band inside them with two wires coming out from either sides. The ballast is often located on the same side as one of these wires and it’s what makes halogens produce light when electricity passes through them. HID headlights require two separate bulbs for high and low beams, so they will be even harder to figure out since there won’t be any visible bands or wires in each unit.

Xenon/HID bulbs serve as both low and high beams, which means they don’t require a separate unit.

Most vehicles today use either HIDs or LEDs for headlight bulbs, but some still come with halogens. You can check the manufacturer’s documentation if you’re not sure what kind of lights your vehicle uses. If you want to change the headlights on your vehicle and make it look really cool at night, we suggest choosing LED lamps instead of xenon ones since they will produce more light and last longer (up to ten years). Don’t be surprised if car dealerships try to sell you Xenon/HID headlights over LED ones; that is their main business after all.

How To Replace Your Car’s Headlight Bulbs?

This review will be all about replacing the halogen bulbs with LED. So if you’re looking to replace those annoying and unreliable halogens, then this article is for you! Why change to LED? Well, the answer is simple: they last longer than any other bulb on the market—up to 100,000 hours of continuous use! This is because LEDs require less energy and put out a clear white light that’s brighter than halogens. Halogens tend to become yellowish after a few years of continuous use, but LEDs retain their new-car look for many years. They also come with a full 2-year warranty from manufacturer defects. The installation process is very easy too. Basically it will take no more then 20 minutes to finish.

To begin the installation, you will need to open the hood of your car and locate the battery. The battery is attached with metal strap that holds it in place. Carefully remove this strap, don’t worry about damaging or scratching it since they are quite cheap to replace at any auto store. Once you have removed the strap, carefully tilt the battery towards yourself until you can see its top side where positive and negative terminals are located.

Now position your new LED headlights onto the mounting brackets of your old halogen bulbs, make sure both sides fit tightly into their slots then tighten them down with a screwdriver until they won’t go any further. It’s very important not to over tighten these screws because doing so will damage both halogen bulb

The first step is to peel off the rubber caps on both ends of your headlight housing and then use a flathead screwdriver to remove the plastic rivet that holds the electrical connector in place. After this, you can simply release the old bulb from its socket by turning it counterclockwise and gently pulling it out with your fingers. Once this is done, there should be a small amount of grease or oil surrounding the base, so wipe it clean using a paper towel.

Then go ahead and insert the new LED light into its socket and turn clockwise until tight—but not too tight! Just enough to make sure it’s fully inserted. This will prevent any water leaks later on down the road as well as breakage. Finally, attach the electrical connection back to its housing and secure it with the rivet. That’s all! It should now be safe for you to reinstall the headlight assembly back in its original position.
