AutoMetrics of Yakima would like to inform you that the simple job of headlight replacement could possibly cost you hundreds of dollars for someones else’s mistake. Do you see the clip in the picture above? It has to engage EASILY under the clip retainer. If not, get some help.
Proper installation matters
You see, most headlight reflectors are made of plastic and if the bulb is misassembled or it comes loose, it will melt the reflector in the car. That results in having to purchase a new headlight assembly. We have seen this happen numerous times! Take your time and get the bulb in there right! If the bulb is in there wrong, you will notice the light output will not be acceptable. This should clue you in.
Ensure alignment after replacement
It is a great idea to have your headlights aligned after bulb replacement as all bulbs are manufactured slightly differently which will change the focal point of the headlight beam. This is important if your night vision has diminished with the aging process.
Why bring it to us
My night vision has never been really great, so I am probably the most picky auto mechanic you will ever meet when it comes to your headlights, whether it be bulb upgrades, replacement, or headlight alignment.
We have the expertise at AutoMetrics to make sure you are driving safely when we are done with your headlight change.
